Q: How Do I Prepare Shrubs For Winter?

 

ANSWER:

 

Plants always do better if they have a heavy watering in late October. Watering-in helps roots from being damaged by cold weather or dry soil.

Cleaning up leaves will help to prevent disease and insects the following year. Do not put infected material into your compost. Throw the infected material away with the garbage.
 Additional care is required for some Evergreens. Reduce winter damage on Evergreens by creating a screen. For a screen burlap and a few stakes are often used. Remember to pound the stakes into the ground around the Evergreen before the ground freezes. Once the ground freezes, staple the burlap around the stakes making a suitable screen.
