|Dear Reader,Â Â |
Gardening season is officially over; now is a time to huddle indoors and dream of spring.Â This is also a great time to think about Holiday Season gifts for the gardeners in your family: Â
Do you know a Houseplant Devotee?Â They will love the SuperFood Plant Tabs to nurture their indoor plants.Â SuperFood is on special at $8.99 per box for the whole of November and December!
As you wrap up the garden for the year, take time to look over any trees and shrubs that need attention.Â After the recent heavy snows in Colorado, the roads and backyards were littered with tree limbs, ripped from trunks.Â Many trees are now stressed and vulnerable to diseases.Â This months article gives some tips on how to give your trees a little extra TLC over the winter.Â They will appreciate it.
Unless I get a sudden urge, this will be the last newsletter before January, so have a wonderful and peaceful holiday season.

A tree may look big, strong and permanent, but it is a living being that requires care, particularly in harsh conditions. Mentally divide the needs of your trees into its component parts: roots, trunk/bark, limbs/shoots.
A tree takes up nutrients and moisture through tiny rootlets. While a big tree has one or more deep main roots (tap roots), most feeder roots are close to the surface, sometimes as little as a few inches down. These need protecting, watering and feeding:
The inner layer of the bark moves nutrients and moisture up to the shoots and leaves. Damage to the outer protective layers of the trunk leaves the tree open to invasion by disease and insects.
Limbs and Shoots
Pruning should be completed while trees are dormant, either in late fall or early spring.
With a little forethought and care, your trees will bring shelter and beauty to your garden for years to come.
