Hope you’re enjoying this crisp fall weather but you may be wondering why you aren’t seeing the colors change like we are used to? I took a few rides up through the White Mountains the past couple of weekends and the foliage was lackluster to say the least!
It has certainly been an interesting few years for our plants; between last year’s drought, the mild winter and cold snap and the overabundance of rain this whole year. All of these factors have played a part in stressing your plants.
- Drought- this caused many trees and shrubs to drop their leaves early last year as a stress reduction technique
- The cold snap we had last Feb after so much mild weather caused many flowering trees and shrubs to not bloom at all or not even leaf out initially this spring- many already stressed plants even died.
- The constant rain has produced a great growing season but has also effectively flushed nutrients our trees and shrubs need to harden off for the winter out of the soil. This overabundance of rain is what is causing the early leaf drop as well as trees dropping leaves without changing color like they normally would.
All of these factors have your plants needing a bit of a boost going into the later fall. Deep Root Fertilization (DRF) can give them back the nutrients they need to rebound and come out of the winter healthy and ready for whatever mother nature throws at us next.
With DRF you’ll be protecting your investment by: Replenishing the nutrients in the soil, reducing stress, help them prepare for winter and reduce your risk costly damage to your plants and increase spring health and blooms on your flowering plants.
Questions about your plants and if they can benefit from DRF? Give us a shout, and we’ll set up a time for our friendly team to swing by. Your plants will thank you!
