According to Shelly, Store Mgr 1. Cut back all perennials after a hard frost. Remove all dead debris and put into your compost pile. 2. Divide and/or move perennials. 3. Plant spring blooming bulbs, including crocus, tulips and daffodils. 4. Wrap the trunks of smooth-skinned trees like maple, ash, fruit trees and crabapples with tree wrap to help prevent frost cracks and animal damage from deer, rabbit and mice. 5. Wrap arborvitaes and soft needle evergreens like yews, white pine and red pine with burlap or black netting to help prevent wind burn and animal damage. 6. Spray evergreens, rhododendrons and azaleas with Wilt Pruf to prevent wind burn and salt damage. 7. Clean up and fertilize the lawn. Remove leaves, shred and put in compost pile or put on your veggie garden for next year. If you only fertilize your lawn once, fall is the best time. Cut your lawn one last time to about 3″ tall. This helps hold snow cover to prevent freeze out. 8. Bury, tip or cover hybrid tea roses, floradunda roses or shrub roses. 9. Mulch tender plants or newly planted perennials and trees with straw to prevent deep freezing after the ground has frozen, mid to late November. 10. Make sure your plants are well watered going into freeze up, which is usually mid to late November.
