Keep Your Holiday Dollars Local

The weather is crisping up and fall is upon us! Did you have time to clean up your gardens and put them to bed? Cutting back perennials, protecting delicate plants, and sheltering vulnerable shrubs should be the priority. After the grounds are cleaned up, you may be carving pumpkins, decorating for Thanksgiving, or even shopping for the upcoming holiday. Yes, Christmas is around the corner!

However, research and planning your springtime projects through the colder months will give you plenty of time to budget for any new garden beds or landscaping ideas you have brewing. You can also look at your winter landscape and decide how you might want to change things up for next year. Here are some shrubs that will add some interest throughout the year: Winter Interest Shrubs & Grasses Add Cheer to Zone 5 Gardens.
