The State of the Garden.Wind chill of 11 degress this moValentines Day! More winter weather on the way. The garden has had good cold temperatures to reset the plants with good dormancy. Even though the dead of winter is apon us there is gardening to do. Apply slow release fertilizer to young plants ,clean up perennialsand ornamental grasses. Avoid pruning hydrangeas untill new growth emerges. Install new plantings before spring. Deer love azaleas. For the one week of bloom and the Lacebug issue are they worthit. I dont think so. There are lots of spring blooming alternatives which I will discuss in my next blog. Stay warm and heathly.
