TIMELY TIPS
Plants in the ground, especially newly planted trees, shrubs and perennials, need the equivalent of one inch of precipitation per month.  Plants in containers need more since they dry out faster. If natural precipitation does not arrive, this will be necessary throughout the winter for ALL plants. Visit this helpful link on high desert winter watering to read our fact sheet titled IF-13 Winter Watering. Store your drained hoses in the garage so that you can easily use them to water your lawn, trees, shrubs, containers and newly planted perennials should we not get precipitation during this month and throughout the winter.

  • Keep your holidays merry, bright and SAFE for everyone by keeping in mind Pet Safety Tips for toxic plants, holiday decorations and more. Click here for tips.

  • Put out seed cakes and cylinders to provide birds with a steady supply of food, even during the worst weather. Seasonal choices such as our Cranberry Fare wreath, Buttons the Snowman, and Preston the Penguin add a festive touch to your bird feeding with additional convenience for you! 

  • Provide a heated birdbath to ensure a steady supply of water. Remember, birds still need to bathe even in winter to keep their feathers conditioned for insulation and flight, in addition to their need for clean, fresh drinking water.

  • Feed high fat, high caloric content seeds to help satisfy birds’ cold weather needs. Nyjer®, sunflower, safflower, peanuts and Finch Blend all add needed calories, and all of our Plus blends include Bark Butter® Bits for added fat and protein. Try our seasonally savvy Winter SuperBlend™ -a complete winter food source. 

  • If voles have been a problem, apply Bonide MoleMax to those area they typically frequent before the next snowfall. MoleMax acts as a repellent and will protect the plant material in the treated zones.

  • Mulch perennial beds and roses now if you haven’t done so with 2-4” of G&B Organics Soil Building Conditioner.

  • To protect the bark of young trees and older trees that may be susceptible to winter sunscald & frost damage to the south and southwest sides of their trunk, wrap bark in the coldest months of the year. Use a light colored and flexible tree wrap from a few inches above the ground to just below the lowest limbs. From late December through mid-March this will help prevent damage from extreme cold and temperature fluctuations. Make a note to remove wrap when pea and potato planting time arrives – St. Patrick’s Day in the Truckee Meadows. Do not leave the wrap on year-round; it will provide habitat for pests.

  • Begin deterring squirrels in January with Wilco Squirrel Bait Station and Pellets.

  • When choosing a cut Christmas tree, select one with firm needles that don’t drop off when the tree is raised up a few inches and dropped to the ground. The bottom of the stump should be moist with some sap present.  Cut two inches of the stump and immediately plunge tree into a bucket of warm water. Before bringing spray with Bonide Wilt Stop to help prevent the needles from drying out. Make sure the stand is full of water each dayIf left without water, the tree will form a seal which prevents it from taking up any water. Add SUPERthrive (1/4 tsp. per gal. of water) or Bush Doctor Boomerang (1 Tbs. per 1 gal of water) to every watering to enhance water uptake & promote tree vitality.
