Hello Delahunty followers, 
I wanted to take a minute and talk about how to garden in the winter. It may not be what you think. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Houseplants

  • Use this month to check the size of your houseplants: divide and re-pot any pot-bound plants. Prune judiciously to create a compact, attractive specimen.

  • Closely inspect houseplants. Remove aphids from houseplants with a mixture of equal parts rubbing alcohol and water and add a drop of dishwashing detergent. Apply this to troubled plants with a soft brush.

  • Webbing and spotted leaves can indicate spidermites on plants. Hold a piece of white paper under leaves and gently tap the stem. If black dots land on paper and start to move around, you have spider mites. Spray with insecticidal soap according to directions and increase humidity around plants.

  • Group houseplants to increase humidity. Fill a tray with pebbles and water then place houseplants on top. This will provide humidity around the pots as the water evaporates.

  • Houseplants like sunny windows on a winter’s day but you’ll want to provide extra protection while it’s so cold. Place cardboard between the plants and the glass overnight and be sure the plants don’t touch the windowpanes.

  • Fertilize your houseplants with a water-soluble fertilizer and remember to water them. Water when the surface is dry to the touch. Overwatering can lead to plant diseases.

Do now what you’ll appreciate later

  • Organize, clean, oil, and sharpen garden tools.

  • A splash of bright paint on tool handles will make them easier to spot out in the yard.

  • Get your lawn mower blades sharpened and the motor tuned up.

Step outdoors

  • Remember to supply fresh water for the birds.

  • Nuthatches, chickadees, cardinals, and juncos will enjoy any bread scraps you may have.

  • Gently shake or brush off snow-weighted branches that have no support. Heavy snow cover protects evergreen foliage from windburn, but too much weight will break branches. Knock off snow from below with a broom so you don’t give yourself a shower.

  • Prune fruit trees now. The trimmings can be gathered up into bundles to be used for kindling after they’ve dried.

  • Avoid walking over the same areas of your frozen lawn, or you may find bald spots in the spring.

  • Keep your bird feeders clean! Every month, wash with soapy water and rinse thoroughly.

  • Trim any hedges that have been damaged from snow.
