Thanks for checking this page. As I build out and move my main garden site to Medium, these seasonal posts will be filled out.

How to feed your trees and shrubs in the fall. A little known fact is that tree roots never go fully dormant but continue to work below the frost line. So when we feed them in the fall, we’ll get stronger spring growth than if we feed in the spring. (Just a little grower trick for you) :-)

Take care of these issues in the fall so you won’t lose as many plants during the winter. Four things that kill perennial flowers over the winter.
