Seasonal Ideas & Information for January

The following are a list of activities to consider for your January gardening:
  • Plant vegetables from transplants.
  • Plant seeds.
  • Plant rosebushes.
  • Plant fruiting plants.
  • Plant pansies, snapdragons, violas, alyssum, cyclamen.
  • Plant those bulbs that you put in your refrigerator to provide for a chill treatment.  They won't flower in the fridge!
  • Plant spring flowering trees and shrubs.
  • Fertilize established trees and shrubs.
  • Water newly planted transplants.  Containers need more frequent water than plants in the ground.  Water well before a freeze to protect roots.
  • Plan ahead for cold weather.  At some point it will get cold enough that tropical plants will need protection.  Decide which plants you will choose to protect.  Make sure you have enough materials on hand.....frost cloth, blankets, cardboard boxes, stakes, etc.  Each plant needs to have a covering large enough to extend to the ground.  

FROM OUR
LANDSCAPE DEPARTMENT

How to prepare for upcoming cold weather:
1.  Cover all of your tender plants with frost cloth.   Do not use plastic to cover your plants.   The plastic will harm your plants.
2.  Water all of your plants and containers before the cold weather        arrives.  This will help to protect your plant from frost damage.
3.  Mulch your flowerbeds and plants well to keep plant roots insulated
 


Tree Mail



"Seeds readers might enjoy reading about the 'emotional' response to an effort to protect trees in Melbourne, Australia," writes Bill Scheick. "
70,000 trees there were given email addresses, designed for citizens to use to alert about any arbor-related problems that might need attention. 
Instead, people worldwide wrote about their feelings, ranging from virtual tree-hugging to nature- and life-questions. 
Some of these messages, accompanied by photos of the addressed tree, are on display at  https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-12/people-are-emailing-trees/10468964."
