“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
― Albert Camus

Haven’t we already done all the work?

Clean-up……check

Raking……….check

Mulching……check

Weeding…… check!

  • Now is a good time to read gardening books and look over those delicious seed catalogs and plan for spring.
  • Apply dormant spray to trees, shrubs and roses.
  • Mulch shrubs and perennials for cold weather.
  • Water if necessary, especially before a freeze and plants below the eves.
  • Longing for life?  Try growing orchids indoors! For more orchid info. visit the Northwest Orchid Society website.
