Fall Lawn Care
Apply ferti•lome Winterizer to cool-season grasses (fescue, rye or bluegrass) in November. Aside from September, November is the next best time to fertilize cool-season lawns. This application of Winterizer’s 25% nitrogen keeps lawns green longer into the winter and is stored by the grass to green it up earlier in the spring.
November is the perfect month to plant tulips. Other bulbs (daffodils, crocus, hyacinths) can also be planted. Choose a pleasant day and enjoy planting bulbs that will bring early spring cheer to your yard.
We recommend planting with Back To Nature Cotton Burr Compost, Hi-Yield Bone Meal and Hi-Yield Dutch Bulb Food.
Trees & Shrubs
Continue planting trees and shrubs. Use ferti•lome Root Stimulator and MYKE, a beneficial fungus, to improve root development when planting. Mulch around the plant to help retain moisture and keep soil temperature even.
If you haven’t fertilized your plants this fall, use ferti•lome Tree & Shrub Food now and water it in well.
All plants—especially tender ones like roses, crapemyrtle and perennials—will benefit from being mulched in the winter. Cedar or cypress mulch, cotton burr compost, bark, or even straw can be used to keep the soil temperature even, reducing the freeze and thaw fluctuations that are so damaging to plant roots. Mulch now or wait until after it freezes.
