Autumn is the perfect time to prep all of your outdoor spaces and tools for the wet winter months coming ahead. You can start by halting any fertilization processes that you’ve been using on your roses and related perennials and replacing the process with a lawn food that releases slowly. You will also want to clean out your gutters and apply a layer of repelling sprays so that your gutters, roof, and hardscapes don’t experience overgrowth of mold and mildew.
- Since nurseries restock throughout the autumn season, prune any wilted plants and flowers and replace them with healthier seasonal varieties.
- When you clean the gutters before winter, apply some moss repelling spray to prevent mold and mildew growth during the winter season.
- Petunia baskets can typically stay up during the winter season as long as they are regularly maintenanced by pruning and watering.
