January Lawn & Garden Tips
Protect Plants for the Cold.If a freeze is expected, make sure that the soil around all outdoor plants has been watered well. Plants in containers can be grouped close together on a porch or patio or moved to a protected area. Be sure tender plants, such as pansy beds or emerging bulb foliage, are mulched well with pine straw or bark.
Time to PruneNow is a good time to prune overgrown trees and shrubs. Do not prune spring flowering trees and shrubs like Dogwoods, Flowering Cherries, and Azaleas. Wait until after they bloom to prune them. Questions? Stop by Pike Nurseries and our certified plant professionals can help.
Color for the Landscape.No need for your landscape to experience the winter blues. Plant winter-blooming shrubs like camellia, Witch Hazel and more.
