Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Trees can be safely planted in the fall until about 4 to 6 weeks before the ground freezes. When planting, make sure the hole is at least twice the size of the tree’s root ball. Loosen root ball and spread out roots before planting so roots are encouraged to grow outward. Stake younger trees to withstand winter winds using a loose fabric or piece of rubber hose to avoid injuring bark. Avoid using wire that can cut into the trunk as the tree grows. Add a few inches of mulch around root zone of the tree, but keep mulch at least three or four inches away from the base of the stem to prevent rot. Add some slow-release fertilizer in early spring.
