November Lawn & Garden Tips

    1. November is a great time to plant trees in order to begin establishing root growth. 
    2. Apply Fertilome Root Stimulator to aide in development of stronger root structure, promoting vigorous growth, & reduce transplant shock.
    3. Stock up on firewood while supplies last.
    4. Pansies, Ornamental Cabbage & Kale may still be planted. Fertilize at time of planting with Hi-Yield Blood Meal, which also repels rabbits.
    5. Pansies can also be fertilized with Premium Bedding Plant Food if planted in the ground. 
    6. In early November fertilize lawns with Fertilome Winterizer or Winterizer with Weed Prevention.
