Gardener’s almanac (Nov. 24)

Keep watering – We’ve had some warm weather and we’ve had lots of wind. And only a smidge – if that – of rain lately. Perennials, shrubs and trees should all go into winter moist. “It is especially important for evergreens, because moisture is easily lost from the foliage,” Ward Upham of K-State says. “Newly planted trees and shrubs also are more at risk due to limited root systems. Even trees and shrubs planted the last two to three years are more sensitive to drought than a well-established plant.
