Fall Is Coming!!

It’s hard to believe that fall is just around the corner already and where did the summer go? It really feel like we had much of a summer, with the late snow melt, along with the slow rise of the ground temps and late start to the planting season.
But here it is, as some of the leaves are starting to change along with the cooler nights, it has us planning for the upcoming fall season. Are you ready for it?
We’d like an extended summer to make up for the season that never really took off this year, with late blooming gardens and a shortened mowing season. Please don’t misunderstand me, fall is my favorite time of the year and many services are available for the fall season. We’ve been getting everything ready to go, except for our leaf loader.
Fall is also a great time to plant for next spring, pruning, aerating and over-seed your lawn along with fertilizing and fall cleanups here in Norway Maine.

While both shrubs and trees add texture, color and structure to your landscape. They are an essential component to your landscape, as they create focal points for your landscape and the good news is that taking care of your shrubs or trees is relatively an easy task. Hopefully, you either kept the tags or wrote down the care instructions for your shrub or tree. Whether your plant was container grown or bare root grown, each will have different care requirements and routine maintenance of your shrubs and trees are a key factor for healthy growth. Part of that maintenance includes pruning, but what do you prune and when? Another part of that maintenance is feeding or fertilizing your shrubs or trees to insure that the soil has the proper nutrients it needs. Also a watering program will be needed, along with mulching are just some of the basics. Due to the vast amount and variations of shrubs and trees, we will add more blogs covering various pruning tips, fertilizing and soil care, watering, along with which tools to use for each pruning project.

Pruning Roses

In most regions, early spring is the best time to prune your roses, just before the buds appear and always cutting at an angle to ensure that the water runs from the bud itself.

Trimming your rose bushes back encourages strong and healthy shoots that will produce lots of blossoms, while giving the plants a more open area, which helps the plant resist diseases like black spot.
