Fall Fertilization/Pruning

The month of September should be the last month for any fertilization in your yard.  It sometimes takes several weeks for fertilizer to start helping your plants.  So if we have an early frost, the new growth may be smacked pretty hard with the cold weather.  The same goes for pruning – severe pruning stimulates new growth, so get your cutting back now and avoid any early-frost damage.
