Fall Shrub Care

The warm days and cool nights of fall make it the perfect time to get outside and do a few things in your yard before it gets too cold out. Follow these fall shrub care tips so that come spring, when they emerge from their winter slumber, they're going to be looking their best.

Fall shrub care isn't complicated if you remember these three things -- Food. Water. And shelter.

For shrub shelter think mulch. Even if the plant looks dead above the surface, there's a ton going on with the roots below the surface. So to give your roots shelter, add 3-4 inches of mulch about 6 inches away from the plant so the roots are kept warm.

These tips may vary depending on what plants you have and what region you live in. Check out our website ( and our blog ( for more tips and information.
