Calloway's Timely Tips for December

Checklist for December

This month we are going to talk about a list of things that can be done during the approaching winter months.

1. It is still a good time to plant trees and shrubs.

2. Plant any cool weather color, such as Pansies, Snapdragons, Flowering Cabbage and Kale.

3. Fertilize cool season grasses, such as Fescue. Water thoroughly afterwards.

4. Prune summer flowering shrubs and vines now. They will bloom on new growth. Remember-do not top your Crape Myrtles! Simply prune to remove seed heads and shape.

5. Buy frost cloth to have on hand to protect cold tender plants.

6. Mulch well to help protect roots and eliminate winter weeds.

7. Don’t forget to water your landscape during the winter months!

This is also a great time to start planning changes or additions to your landscape. Bring a sketch or photo and let our Texas Certified Nursery Professionals assist you!
