WHAT TO DO IN YOUR GARDEN NOW
Dogwood Tree sets it's buds in the fall
December
  • Remove those leaves!  Leaving leaves on lawns can cause the grass to thin out.
  • Now is a great time to lime!  Check the pH of your soil and amend as needed.
  • Feed your feathered friends!  Birds could use a little extra food now.
  • Time to select Christmas trees, wreaths, and poinsettias!
  • Need a little heat? Chimineas and firepits are great outdoor-gathering features.
