Garden Tips for by Geri Jones, Churchill Gardens, Lenox, MA

Pinch off side buds of peonies to encourage larger blooms.

Prune roses by cutting back all brown, dead canes to live green stems.

A soil test before planting as well as annually thereafter, will aid in establishing the correct soil pH for whatever plantings are planned. Recommendations will be outlined on the pH test results. UMASS soil diagnostic lab offers soil testing at a very reasonable fee. Visit https://ag.umass.edu/soil-plant-tissue-testing-lab/fact-sheets/sampling-instructions-for-routine-soil-analysis for more information.

Apply a professional perennial grass seed over bare or thin spots in the lawn. Scratch the surface of the soil first and water the seed in lightly. A thin layer of straw will help with moisture retention and keeping the birds away. Remove the layer of straw very carefully so as not to disturb the new seedlings approximately 7 – 10 later.

Forsythia should be pruned immediately after flowering. Their new flower buds form by early June. The branch tips of forsythia will root where they touch the ground if not pruned back. Prune forsythia removing the new growth to maintain size and shape. Be sure to remove the dead wood in the center of the plant to let light in and provide adequate air circulation. Using pruners rather than hedge trimmers offers the best results.

Spring Either put up or clean out nesting boxes for birds. The birds are searching out nesting sites now and you can attract them with a clean bird house and perhaps some nesting materials such as lint from the dryer. Place any nesting materials either on the ground, in the crotch of a tree or hanging on a tree limb. When mulching your landscaped beds, remove the top, compacted layer of the existing mulch first. Loosening the mulch in this way allows for better absorption of water and nutrients to your plantings. A light, layer (2�-3�) of a fresh shredded bark mulch may then be applied. Now is a great time to clean out the toolshed. Look carefully at your gardening tools and decide if anything is in need of replacing. Some essential tools to consider for the gardening chores this year include an iron rake; a long-handled, round-pointed shovel; a square garden spade; hand pruners; a long-handled pair of loppers for larger branches; a small, curved pruning saw and a bamboo lawn rake.

Check on your compost pile. If it is not frozen, use a garden fork and dig into it and flip the compost over and over as much as you are able.

To prepare your lawn and landscape for the season, complete a spring clean-up of your gardens by cutting back any foliage left from perennials last year. Rake all debris from lawns and landscape beds when the soil has dried. A bamboo or other soft rake is less apt to tear at sod. Visit your favorite nursery/garden center and purchase a flat of pansies to plant outdoors. Fill a beautiful container or accent the border of your landscaped beds. Look for heat-resistant varieties to extend the bloom time. Pinching off each flower as the spent petals curl will encourage new flowers to bloom.

Garden Tips for 1


3 4



by Geri Jones, Churchill Gardens, Lenox, MA

Vegetable gardens require one inch of rainfall each week. Set up a rain gauge near the vegetable garden to see if your garden is getting enough water. Prune lilacs now that the flowers have faded. Cutting off the spent flower heads will direct the plant’s energy into growth rather than seeds.

Cover highbush blueberries as the fruit begins to ripen to discourage the birds from eating them. Wait until the fruit is beginning to soften and have been blue for a week before picking. Pick blueberries in the morning and don’t wash them until you are ready to use them.

Keep strawberry plants well-watered (once a week) if the weather is dry. Water container gardens on a regular basis during the dry, hot days of summer. When applying water, be sure to saturate the soil. Keep your mower blades sharpened and set on a high setting and mow often leaving the clippings on the lawn. Tall grass has deep roots. Combining the two makes lawns better able to tolerate drought and crowd out weeds.

Adding height and a sense of vertical space in your landscape is easy with annuals. Simply place a container on a pedestal within your landscape. Placing a hanging basket on a Shepard’s hook will also do the trick.

As a general rule, houseplants should be fertilized only when they are actively growing and when light and temperature are such that they can actually take advantage of the additional nutrients. Fertilizing between mid-spring and mid-autumn is recommended with the exception of winter-flowering plants. To minimize black spot on roses, water roses early in the day and try not to get their leaves wet. When planting a rose bush, place a banana peel in the bottom of the planting hole. Banana peels are very good for roses as they provide calcium, magnesium, and phosphates in considerable quantities as they break down.

Watering in the morning rather than the evening can help reduce slug damage to leaves in the garden.

Pinch chrysanthemums and shear back asters for a more compact and fuller late fall bloom.

Garden Tips for 1






by Geri Jones, Churchill Gardens, Lenox, MA

Collect seeds from annuals and perennials that you want to grow next year!

When preparing the landscape for winter, consider cutting down ornamental grasses. They break during the winter months, fall over or will lose their good color. They can look unsightly.

Fall is good time to consider thinning of mildew-prone perennials in the garden. Thinning these plants will help to increase air circulation around the plant and decrease the incidence of disease. The incidence of insect activity may also be discouraged by better air flow.

Remove bedding annuals that have succumbed to frost and compost them. If you leave them in place, eggs of insect pests and spores of disease can remain to cause problems for next year.Remove spent vegetable plants and incorporate compost into the soil. Plant winter rye on top as a green manure crop. This will help to keep the garden soils healthy and productive if done as part of your annual fall routine. Roses should be protected throughout the winter months. To do so, mound some composted manure (I like to use the dehydrated kind) around the base of the plant. Top it off with straw or leaves to help insulate the rose and help with freezing and thawing temperatures throughout the winter months. In the spring, remove the straw or leaf layer and work the manure into the soil. The manure acts as an early-spring fertilizer for the plant. Your roses will love it!

Fall Unhook and drain garden hoses completely. Roll them up and store them off the ground in a garden shed or garage.

Pinch off new blossoms of pumpkin and winter squash. This encourages the fruit to develop much faster and larger.

Attention should be given to perennial gardens. This is the perfect time of year to begin planning dividing and thinning of perennials to increase air circulation in the garden.

Protect fruit trees from mice by wrapping the base of the tree trunks with metal tree guards. Purchase 18” tall cylinders of mesh hardware cloth and cut to fit.

Lift tender summer bulbs such as gladiola, dahlia and canna with a garden fork after they’ve been blackened by frost. Cut off the tops, label them and let them dry in the sun. Don’t shake off all of the soil. After they have dried, gladiola is best stored in open trays. Store dahlias in a box of very slightly damp peat moss.

Garden Tips for 1






by Geri Jones, Churchill Gardens, Lenox, MA

Plan your winter pruning any time as long as the trees and shrubs are leafless. Pruning in stages is best. Begin by removing any dead or diseased wood and then remove weak or crossing stems. Finally prune to shape the plant. Remember that all cuts should be at an angle slanting slightly above and away from a bud or lower branch.

Cut branches of pussy willow, forsythia, witch hazel and flowering quince on a seasonably warm day and bring them indoors. Put some water in a vase, add the branches and in just a short time ‌ Spring!

January is a great time of year to give your houseplants a lukewarm shower to remove dust. Using a humidifier nearby will help to discourage red spider mites. Fertilize lightly and spray plants with a mister.

Winter is the perfect time to prune evergreen hedges. To prevent winter snow from breaking the hedge and splaying the branches, prune so that they are narrower at the top than at the base of the hedge. To keep the clippings from being caught up in the hedge and in your way, begin pruning from the bottom and work your way up.

Be on the lookout for gardening lectures or courses being offered throughout the winter months. Check with your local botanical garden or gardening clubs to see what is being offered.

Feeding the birds is a wonderful winter hobby. Your favorite garden center has a full supply of bird seed, feeders and supplies perfect for gift giving this holiday season. When setting up your feeder, be sure to place it where you can see it from a window. You will be sure to enjoy it!

swen worg orp moc.alnm.www


With the onset of winter and the possibility of heavy, wet snow accumulation, be prepared to brush snow from evergreen trees and shrubs before it freezes. Removing the weight of the snow before it has a chance to freeze, will help prevent winter storm damage to the branches. If evergreen branches get splayed by snow, tie them up.

Pot up bulbs of amaryllis and paperwhites for holiday gift giving.

When repotting houseplants, add a layer of pebbles in bottoms of larger pots to help improve air circulation; it is a must for containers without drainage holes. For small pots, use ½ inch of pebbles and for large pots, use up to 3� of pebbles.

Recycle or return used pots, which have been accumulating in the garage or the shed all season, to accepting nurseries.
