Garden When you think of a Canadian winter, you think of the frosty temperatures and snow. But oddly enough, cold and, in many cases, even snow, aren’t your garden’s worst winter enemies; it’s the wind and those sunny winter days we love that could kill our plants. Wind hazards “Wind can be the real villain, especially with roses,” says Tim Schwenker, head gardener of Hendrie Park’s ornamental plantings at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton, Ontario. “People wonder, ‘Winter wasn’t that bad, but my rose canes all died to the ground.’ ” Cold winter winds, explains Schwenker, dry out the branches of roses and other exposed shrubs. Gardeners are often prepared to deal with the cold, but forget the blasts that slam into their gardens from the north and west. Wind can even damage the roots of top-heavy plants like hybrid tea roses and newly planted trees and shrubs. When it comes to these new plants, there’s one stem and many branches but no major root system, especially if they weren’t planted right in the first place, says Schwenker. It’s tough for a plant to make a comeback from that kind of winter beating. Sun: nice for us, not for our plants A newly planted garden in direct winter sun can be at real risk. “The worst thing for plants, particularly perennials, is alternate freezing and thawing,” says Schwenker. Plants will sustain root damage from heaving and also from the standing water left behind after the snow melts. Some trees, too, suffer from the winter sun’s rays. Apples, flowering crabapples, black cherries, some maples and ornamental cherries—especially grafted ones like the ‘Kwanzan’ Japanese cherry—are the most vulnerable: One side of the tree heats up, and the frozen wood expands, then splits. To a sensitive gardener, unsightly frost cracks running down the trunk are heartbreaking. The wound will heal itself eventually, Schwenker says, but repeated over the years, the weakened tree could fall over. Snow problem? Snow, by itself, is actually a good thing, says Schwenker. It keeps the ground cold, protecting the roots of plants from disturbance during their winter’s sleep. When it does melt in spring, snow tends to melt slowly. The ground is also thawing, so the earth can gradually absorb the water. Of course, soil with good drainage is the key to making this natural cycle work. If you’re cursed with heavy, clay soil, the snow melt could turn into an ice pack or standing water. “Amend the soil,” Schwenker recommends. “Compost, compost, compost, and work it in at least 12 inches [20 cm].”

Home buying tips... • Get legal advice before signing the contract. Talk with a real estate lawyer and review the Agreement of Purchase and Sale (APS) together before signing. Ensure that you understand the exact terms and conditions of the contract and that you know what’s included in the purchase price. Be sure that any verbal agreements from the seller are included in writing within the APS. Negotiate a reasonable closing or occupancy date and ascertain that all deposit details are well-documented. • Stay calm. Even in a hot market, remain cool and calculated with your decisions. Your home purchase will likely be your single largest investment. If you’re buying a new condominium, review the disclosure statement carefully. By law, you have a 10-day cooling off period to change your mind once you receive this statement. • Be thorough during the pre-delivery inspection. Before you take possession of your new home or condominium, the builder is

required to conduct a pre-delivery inspection of the property with you. This is one of your first opportunities to see your new home in its final state. During this inspection, it is crucial to note anything that is missing, not working properly, or damaged. Conduct the inspection at your own pace and check all the details. Write everything down on the pre-delivery inspection form. This is one of the most important opportunities for you to note any problems in the new property. • Make sure that your finances are in order. As you begin the search for a new home, this is an ideal time to make sure that your finances are in order and to set up your financial plan for the future. A professional mortgage consultant will work with you to map out a path to financial freedom. Finally, make sure to have fun during your home buying adventure! You’ll only buy your first home once, and with the right team of professional advisors, it can be a stress-free and enjoyable experience.

At RE/MAX, we believe that serving the communities in which we live and work allows us to not only contribute to the well-being of our society, but to also be concerned about the outcome of that contribution. This dedication we call Premiere Community Citizenship. Our commitment as the exclusive real estate corporate sponsor for Children’s Miracle Network allows us the opportunity to expand the universal cause of caring for sick children. The RE/MAX - Children’s Miracle Network affiliation began in 1986 when RE/MAX affiliates in Calgary, Alberta and the Quebec Region started raising funds for this worthy cause. In 1992, RE/MAX International adopted the Children’s Miracle Network as its official corporate charity. Raising funds for hospitalized children, RE/MAX professionals to date have collectively contributed over $85 million to the cause. In Canada, RE/MAX continues to be a strong corporate contributor to Children’s Miracle Network - $4 million in 2008. With funds contributed by national sponsors like RE/MAX, affiliated hospitals are able to provide needed medical care and equipment for more than 2.6 million Canadian children each year. RE/MAX chose the Children’s Miracle Network as its international charity because... The Mission Statement of Children’s Miracle Network, an international non-profit organization, is to “Generate funds and awareness programs for the benefit of children served by its associated hospitals”. An outstanding cause! RE/MAX lists and sells homes with the very families whose children have been served, or may one day be served, by a Children’s Miracle Network hospital. One in four Canadian children will be treated in a Children’s Miracle Network hospital this year. RE/MAX stands for quality service and for caring about the communities where its Associates live and work. RE/MAX makes the world a better place to live through Premiere Community Citizenship.

For every home sold by the Trevor Bolin Team during the month of April, a donation will be made towards the Children’s Miracle Network.
