January | February | March 2021 | Gettysburg


JANUARY TO-DO LIST

In the beds

• Add new mulch to protect plant roots during freezing

temperatures, conserve soil moisture and discourage

weeds.

• Prune crape myrtle trees, removing only limbs

necessary to thin out trees and provide a stately

structure. This provides additional energy for profuse

blooming all summer. Topping is not necessary. To

avoid topping, plant a variety that will grow only to the

height proper for the growing area. Ask your nursery for

available colors and growth patterns. When pruning,

use sharp tools and cut at 45 degree angles, leaving no

stubs. This promotes proper healing. Cuts at right angles

produce deadwood.

• Prune woody trees, shrubs and fruit trees.

• Cut back ornamental grasses to ensure that the new

growth will be able to emerge unhindered by old

foliage. You will get a nice flush of growth in the spring.

• Winter-flowering plants need a feeding with a balanced

fertilizer to keep blooming in these cold months.

• Prune back plants with freeze-damaged vegetation

late in the month of January.

• Tree leaves can remain in flowerbeds for temporary

insulation of plants.

In the Lawn

• Grass mowing is usually not necessary this month.

A light covering of leaves can protect grass from cold

weather, but do not allow to collect heavily and kill the

grass below.

• Aeration of the lawn improves air circulation, helps

break down any buildup of thatch and other organic

material, improves moisture distribution and helps

sunlight reach plant roots.

In the Garden

• Continue seeding lettuce, carrots, beets, cabbage,

broccoli, peas, onion & radish.

• Keep garden fed with MicroLife Ultimate.

• Cover crops if we are going to have icy weather.

• Make sure to water if we are going to freeze to insulate

root systems.

• Start planning for potatoes in February.

Get Your Green On!

FEBRUARY TO-DO

1. Cover plants, water well if a freeze is forecast. The

coldest oldest days usually occur this month.

2. Remove covers first thing in the morning if it’s above

freezing. Heat builds under covers and your plants will

cook!

3. Mow the lawn once to allow the sun to reach the

roots.

4. Prune grafted roses; Valentine’s Day is traditional

time-to trigger healthy new growth.

5. Plant later-blooming bulbs, corms and tubers, such as

amaryllis, canna and gladiolus.

6. Watch the temps, if towards the end of the month, temps look like

freezes are over… get tomatoes in the ground!!! We have to start early in

Houston if you want good yields!!!!

7. Don’t commit crapemurder!!! Resist the urge to do what your neighbors

and ill-informed landscapers do. If you need to prune and shape your

crape myrtle stop by the nursery and we can show you the correct way

to prune them.

MARCH TO-DO

• Get cool-season crops and tomatoes into the garden now!!!! Don’t waitsoon

the weather will be too hot for them. Have row covers or homemade

windbreaks handy to protect plants on chilly nights.

• Early this month, sow the last plantings of spinach, turnips, mustard,

beets, carrots and broccoli.

• In mid-to-late March, plant corn, squash, peppers and cucumbers.

Nourish young plants with liquid organic fertilizer.

• Pull mulch away from perennials, shrubs and trees to allow the soil to

warm around them.

• Feed everything with the pink label Micro-Life.

• Fertilize the lawn with Micro-Life Hybrid Fertilizer!!!! It’s AMAZING!!!!!

• Apply MicroLife Humates plus and a soil activator like Medina plus. This

will help naturally aerate, dethatch and help with water retention come

Summer and build soil microbes to fight fungus naturally!!!

• Bye caladiums now!!! There are many exciting new varieties that have

been introduced this year. Get them while their HOT!!! If you wait too

long, you’ll miss out!

• Check out the new addition at Plants for all Seasons! We are super

excited to offer terrium plants and supplies, indoor plants, MORE SEEDS

and BULBS than ever before and a bigger selection of garden flags.

DEBRIS CAN CAUSE CLOGGING OF STORM DRAINS

When storm drains clog (or catch basins) with leaves and other debris, water can no longer drain from the street. This water then pools along streets

and can flood intersections and homes.

Contrary to popular belief, oil, pet waste and other materials dumped into the storm drains do not go to the wastewater treatment plant, but instead

flow directly into streams and rivers. Dumping debris and other material into the storm drain is not only illegal, but contributes pollution to our

waterways and causes localized flooding.

It is important to keep storm drains free of obstructions to prevent street flooding, property damage and hazards to the public traveling the roadways.

How should you dispose of leaves and debris? When clearing your sidewalk of driveway, please don’t rake or blow the leaves and grass clippings from

your yard into the street. One option would be to sweep, collect and bag leaves and grass clippings. Another option would be to blow grass clippings

back onto your lawn when they can become mulch and a natural fertilizer. Or consider raking or blowing leaves and debris into a compost pile, where

they can decompose.

HAZARDOUS WASTE DISPOSAL

REMINDER TO OUR RESIDENTS -

THE SPEED LIMIT IN

GETTYSBURG IS 20 MPH!

We love our kids and we want our residents to be safe

while walking, running & biking.

Many residents continue to voice real concerns about

speeding on our streets.

While many drivers using our streets do not live in

Gettysburg, we ask our residents to please watch their

speed to help set a good example for others.

Information below taken from their website:

The Harris County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility opened March 10, 2010

and provides free services to approximately 1.3 million residents of unincorporated Harris

County. Our services allow residents a convenient, safe and environmentally compliant

way to dispose of the chemicals and some other non-hazardous recyclable items used in

their home. The facility is also used as a point of operations for disaster management in

the event of a hurricane, flood, tornado or other type disaster.

We do not have a home pick-up service. You must bring your items to the facility and we

offload them for you. For your safety we request that you put your vehicle in park, turn

off the ignition and remain in your vehicle. Trained staff will pack the items according

to all Federal, state and local regulations and send them for proper disposal using best

environmental management practices. Approximately 75% of all items collected are sent

for recycling or energy recovery. The remaining percentage is disposed using treatment

techniques that ensure the hazardous components are completely destroyed.

Or…feel free to visit www.earth911.com for various options based on material you are

trying to dispose/recycle
