Even though our recent temperatures make it feel more like January, there still may be time to complete one or more of these late-season tasks:
• Plant Indoor Bulbs: The outside temperatures won’t foil this plan! November is an excellent time to start paperwhites and amaryllis indoors for holiday gift-giving or for your own enjoyment. Paperwhites take 4-6 weeks to bloom and amaryllis can take 6-12 weeks.
• Spread Wildflower and Grass Seed: Seed will lay dormant until next spring.
All remaining seed is now 50% off.
• Mow, fertilize and protect your lawn: A shorter final cut will reduce the amount of raking next spring. Spread fall fertilizer (we love Espoma ™ organic) and a granular rodent repellant like Molemax™ if voles are a problem in your area.
• Hang and fill bird feeders: We carry a variety of bird feeders and seed to attract a range of wild birds. Feeders placed near trees and shrubs will encourage more visiting birds since they like the protection of nearby branches.
