I planted some purple and yellow pansies today. Love the touch of bright colors the pansies provide for the fall and winter seasons when all the other flowers are dormant. Here are some garden tips from one of our local nurseries.
Callie's Garden Tip -
Winterize Your Landscape
Prepare for the cold weather before it hits! One of the best things you can do for your landscape plants is to provide a 2 to 3 inch layer of mulch. Mulching is necessary year-round but during the colder periods it provides a layer of insulation for the roots. Secondly, water your landscape well before a cold spell. A drought-stressed plant is more susceptible to freeze damage. Thirdly, for more tender plants, purchase frost cloth or a plant protector bag for extra protection.
