Good Afternoon Great-Gardeners,

The weather has been absolutely amazing. Saturday my brother and his family visited. We ventured downtown  to see the lights on the square. The kids had a blast going from one display to the next, posing for pictures. They had so much fun that we had to go around a second time just to make sure we got pictures with every display.
With the weather being so warm we have had a lot of calls on whether you can still plant or not. It is late on planting many slow rooting varieties of plants. Trees such as Maples and Crabapples would probably be okay. It is hard to say though not knowing if the temperatures will drop drastically in the next month. For new plantings make sure to give one last good watering before the ground freezes.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, hit reply. I would love to hear from you. As always, have a great-gardening day.

What's Bugging?
Spider Mites
They love hot, dry conditions and if not controlled can kill a houseplant pretty quickly.
They usually live on the undersides of the houseplants leaves and you will tend to notice the damage to the plants before the mites themselves.

There are many signs to look for when checking for them, among them being webbing, rapid leaf loss, and discoloration of leaves.

To treat for spider mites we recommend using Bonide Neem Oil (Read and follow label instructions precisely.)

It will take more than one treatment to completely get rid of the mites.

Your Questions Answered
Q. Can I prune my roses back now?

A. We suggest you wait on pruning your roses at this time. Usually we recommend pruning and covering after Thanksgiving, but with the warm temperatures some roses have not even gone dormant yet. If you were to trim now and cover they could start leafing out again. The new leaves would not have time to harden off and when a cold snap hits the new growth, it can be killed.  We suggest waiting until temperatures drop before doing any covering. Shrub roses and knock out roses you can wait until spring to prune.
