Happy Fall to All!
I am so glad to have cooler temperatures for our seasonal tasks: transplanting, dividing and planting. We're still wishing for more frequent rain to help things settle in and to refresh existing plantings parched by this summer's drought and high humidity. Some plants are dying back early this year, a survival technique. We will be cutting them back as we make our rounds. I see the birch trees along Turner Road are already yellow and dropping leaves in a similar strategy.
Please keep up with watering any woody plant that was installed within the past 5 years. It is so important for these newly rooting plants to go into winter well hydrated. If you have water bans in your town, we can help by bringing water to you in our 200 gallon sprayer mounted on our plant health care truck.
Don't forget that we can help you with hardscape projects this month and next - as long as there is no frost in the ground.
