Feed deciduous fruit trees now. Even though most of the varieties are done with fruit production for the year, it is important to add the strength to the tree for next year’s crop. Use the Nutri-Paks for fruits and nuts. These great packets will feed your trees for 3 full years. You will see your trees explode with growth and fruit production.
It’s Pruning Season
Pruning is the act of selectively trimming plant material in order to direct growth. It’s done to promote better flowering or fruiting, accentuate a plant’s natural form, and increase its vigor.
For the majority of plants, the best time to prune is in late winter to early spring; a dormant plant is less likely to have a stress reaction to the removal of limbs and foliage.
You Have Only One Chance to Create That First Impression
As more homeowners relandscape gardens, there is an increasing desire for something out of the ordinary. This is a direct departure from the traditional foundation shrubs that came to be the standard look in most front yards of the 70’s and 80’s.
