Fall Deep Root Feeding Pays Off

It’s not too late for 2008
Call Now for Healthier Trees & Shrubs
Deep root feed your trees and shrubs this fall. Once the plants have started to turn colour, growth has stopped and it is safe to apply nutrients to the root zone. (If fed too early, the presultant plant growth will not have enough time to harden off before winter.)
When fed in Late October through early November, the nutrients are taken up by the tree and shrub roots and are there ready to be used for the Spring growth.
We were exploring the gardens in Hampton Court Palace this summer in London England.We were amazed to see these enormous yew trees. Here in Canada, we see very few yews of any size. At Hampton Court, there were yews with trunks that were easily 18 inches or more in diameter. Hampton Court was built in the 1500 to 1600's. These huge yews could be several hundred years old.

Amaryllis are Easy to Enjoy

Easy to Love! Easy to Grow!

Amaryllis are one of the easiest bulbs to grow and one of the most spectacular.

The Bulb

Bigger is better. Select a larger bulb, that is firm to the touch. A few dried roots are normal, but most of the roots should be firm

Be careful not to overwater. Water the plant when the top 1/2 inch of soil is dry.

As a rule, the stems and flowers will appear before the leaves. The plant grows quickly and you will need to remember to rotate the pot every couple of days so that your stem grows straight and does not lean towards the light. Expect one or two stems with four blossoms each about 6-7 weeks after planting.
This is a photo of one we grew this winter at home.

(The Huntington Society is selling amaryllis to help fund Huntington’s Disease research-
