Although the temperatures in Georgia during November tend to vary from a warm fall day at 73 degrees to a cool, below freezing night at 28 degrees, tree and shrub care are still important. It will never be a good idea to neglect your landscape greenery because you will always regret it when they don’t bloom as expected when spring comes back around. Although perfectly healthy, middle-aged trees and shrubs can survive through the winter and have no issues, not all trees are healthy or at the proper age for that.
Some of the top things you can do to ensure your trees and shrubs are properly taken care of are…
Insect and Disease Control
This time of year, it might not cross your mind to ensure your trees and shrubs are protected from insects. It’s likely because with fall and winter, come the fall of many insects. You’ll notice fewer mosquitoes and pests invading your home and more comfort when you spend time outdoors. Additionally, with Dollar Spot and Large Patch Fungus as common lawn diseases found here in Georgia, you’ll want to ensure you are covered. By choosing to treat your landscaping with insect and disease control applications in the fall, you can rest assured that your trees and shrubs will be protected all year long.
This type of fertilization is done beneath the surface of the soil to ensure it is more effective than topsoil seeding. The injections are done about 14 inches deep into the roots of your trees and shrubs, to ensure each part of the roots are being reached. Deep-root feedings are done in a grid-like pattern to ensure no part of the tree’s roots is being messed. By using a slow-release fertilizer as well, you will be sure that your trees and shrubs will be healthier, happier, and fully regrow in the upcoming warm-season. Without a winter fertilizer, it is likely that your trees will suffer from winter stress like dehydration and cold fronts, which will affect all greenery but especially newly planted or ones that have health issues, to begin with.
