Fertilize monthly with manure, super-phosphate or a liquid high-phosphate product. Keep flowers picked for more bloom. • Take tulips out of cold storage and plant late this month. • Fertilize established trees, spring-blooming shrubs, spurias and sweet peas (after they are a foot tall) with a fertilizer such as 13-13-13; Louisiana iris with cotton seed meal and manure. • Azaleas and camellias may be moved now. Keep moist to lesson cold weather damage. May acidify again. • Last month to plant early blossoming spring bulbs, speciosum and other varieties of lilies. Mulch. • Water plants well before a freeze; dry roots are easily damaged. • Don’t forget to provide food and fresh water for birds. More birds die from lack of water than lack of food. WILDLIFE - THEY’RE EVERYWHERE By Cheryl Conley, TWRC Wildlife Center Love them or hate them, they’re everywhere! I’m talking about those funny little critters called squirrels. As the fall baby season is coming to an end, TWRC Wildlife Center has been inundated with babies. What is normally a very busy time anyway, Hurricane Harvey only added to the numbers. Hundreds of orphans were admitted and will continue to be cared for until they are ready for release. The Houston area is home to the gray squirrel, the fox squirrel and the flying squirrel. About 90% of the squirrels in our area are gray squirrels. Most people have never seen a flying squirrel because they are nocturnal. They are very small and their tail acts as a rudder to help guide it in flight. They don’t have wings but rather skin that forms “flaps” that stretch between the “ankle” and “wrist.” If you’ve ever seen a squirrel eating out of a “squirrel-proof” bird feeder, then you know how intelligent they are. They have also been known to pretend to bury food just to trick other animals. A 2010 study showed that when a squirrel is being watched, they will actually dig a hole, pat it with their front teeth and scrape dirt over it to make it look like they are burying a treasure when, in fact, they are hiding their stash in a pocket near their armpit. Here are some things you probably don’t know about squirrels: • A squirrel’s front teeth never stop growing. In the wild, squirrels are constantly gnawing which keeps them short.
