This is the best time of the year to plant your bare-root roses, bulbs, camellias, cyclamen, and hellebore, living Christmas trees, and bare-root fruit and landscape trees. In addition, it’s time to adjust your irrigation, protect your citrus and other sensitive plants. Apply dormant spray, add mulch to your plant beds, divide perennials, and throw out fallen rose leaves.
