Nov 6, 2020

Alright guys, it’s November and that means fall is officially here. So they wanted to show you two different types of plants that you can start cutting back now that you don’t have to start cutting your landscape plants back yet if you want to wait until December, that’s totally fine. If you want to wait till spring, that’s fine. But if you really want to tidy up your landscape and not having what kind of so sloppy and dingy or dingy during the wintertime here, here are two plants that you can do right now to start cleaning up.

So the first one is dailies. dailies some people do these in the spring, some people do them in the fall. The longer you wait, the easier this is going to be only because it won’t be so green. So right now everything’s Brown, it’s hard to die out. Here the tools that you need to cut your dailies back your hands, you can just pull right out, just like this. Just like that. And you’re done. You’ve officially cleaned up your dailies, we’re gonna want to throw this away. But you don’t need any special tools. You don’t need head shears or anything like that for dailies. The other thing that you can do now this one, you’re going to want to use either branch cutters or head shears if you have them. Use your hydrangeas. Now, he’s already got cut back. So I’ll try and find a picture on Google and splice it into this video. But people want to know how far back do you cut your hydrangeas, you can cut hydrangeas all the way back to ground level new growth is going to come back next year. So your hydrangeas right now we’re going to be looking kind of sad and droopy. We had some pretty cold weather a few weeks ago. So they’re done. They’re done for the year. If you wait, you can wait if you want to do it. Now you can do it. Now, as a disclaimer to any of you master gardeners or amateur Master Gardeners out there. There is a way more refined ways that you can take care of your hydrangeas.

This is a general rule of thumb for all of you regular homeowners who just want to tidy up the landscape for the winter. Those of you that have a lot more intricate involvement in your landscaping, you know that there are different ways you can cut these hydrangeas and how you cut their stems to get different blooms out of them. But if you’re just a regular homeowner, you just want your landscapes to be tight for the winter. You don’t want to have dead plants everywhere. This is an easy way to take care of it. Those are two plants that you can do right now this time of year to get ready for winter. So I hope that helps.
