Fall Planting and Organic Fertilizing

fall_house_landscapFall is perfect for planting, fertilizing, and wearing your favorite old sweatshirt.

I’m done with summer, I just don’t want to be hot anymore!  The heat is off, (hopefully) and trees, shrubs and plants are preparing to rest for the winter.

Trees, shrubs and perennials needs are simple now:

  • Sunshine to store for spring food
  • Hydration, fresh long drinks of water, until the earth is frozen solid
  • Organic fertilizer to absorb and ready them for spring growth as soon as they wake up

Even after the foliage falls, their roots are still growing for about 6 weeks and their job is to store all these nutrients for Spring.

The advantages to using Organic fertilizer are many:

  • Slow and steady release of nutrients
  • Non-burning
  • Improve the soil structure over timeEspoma Plant Food
  • Increase water holding capacity

My thoughts are keep it  simple, real, alive, and organic.
I prefer ‘Espoma’ brand organics, safe for your plants, the earth, and simple to use.

All the while you are enjoying that cozy sweatshirt, your trees, shrubs and perennials will be preparing for a beautiful spring. Give them what they need now.

Alas, fertilizer is not like chocolate, where more is not better!  Please read your product directions and follow them
