“That grand old poem called Winter”.
Henry David Thoreau

IN WINTER:

Monitor outdoor woody plants for evidence of rodent
or deer damage. Keep snow away from the base of plants
which show signs of gnawing
Weather permitting, dormant pruning can be done in February/March. But avoid pruning birch, elm, maple, &
walnut at this time as sap movement may prevent cuts from healing
Enjoy all those seed catalogs! Begin planning which flowers
you’ll be adding to your garden this year.
