Did you know that the weed plague we have in late winter and early spring is a result of germination in September and October? Experts say it's time to fertilize using counts of high nitrogen, low phosphorus and moderate to high level of potassium. Personally I get lost with numbers. So my experience is simply make the trip to Lowes and get the Fall Weed and Feed. At least it's done and hopefully the weeds are reduced this coming Spring.
Knock out Roses were planted this week as well. The roots will establish over the next few months and hopefully they will grow in size next Spring. Keep in mind I live in an area with very mild winters.
So are you ready to move to Texas?
