What To Do in November!

For garden enthusiasts wrenbirdNovember means end-of-the-year yard cleanups, and the last bulb, tree and shrub plantings of the year. Here are some ideas on what to do with:


Stock up on birdseed!
To protect feeders from bird-hunting cats, or squirrels, hang up feeders away from trees and easily climbable structures, as high off the ground as possible.

If cats and squirrels aren’t a problem, hang feeders near evergreen trees or shrubs so the birds can have winter cover while they feed.

Repair or throw out damaged bird feeders and get new ones.

If you don’t have an outdoor herb garden that you plan to transfer inside you can create a new one by getting a variety of ready to plant herbs at either of our Payne’s Nurseries.
