I prefer winter and Fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. ~Andrew Wyeth
What to Prune
- Deciduous plants that need to be shaped
- Grasses and perennials that are still above ground
What NOT to Prune
- Hydrangeas (macrophylla, like the mop heads)
- Anything that flowers on old wood
What to Plant
- Seeds Indoors
- Herbs (basil, thyme, oregano)
- Outdoors (if the ground is not frozen solid)
- Deciduous trees and shrub
- Garlic and Onion
- If it’s a mild winter, divide perennials, and transplant now before any new growth comes on
- Make plans for the spring–the window is short. Some effort to plan will prevent rushing.
- What projects do you want to take on?
- What do you want to plant?
