November and All Is As It Should Be 

by Lee Vanderpool 

The end of summer and fall is slowly taking over. North winds have begun to blow and leaves are hinting at their first changes to fall colors. Time for trimming and potting is long past, fertilizing can be ended soon, especially for deciduous trees. Pines, junipers and many tropicals will continue to be fertilized throughout the coming winter, albeit much less than is required for the warm 

The time is coming soon for mixing soil, cleaning pots, sharpening tools and in general preparing for the frantic activity of spring. That is what we wait all winter for: that first spring burst of green in February or March. In the meantime, bide your time and enjoy the memories of hours spent with your trees and anticipation of the times to come. There will be no newsletter in December so this is the last issue of this year. Please come and enjoy a Christmas celebration with us on December 6th at the Extension Building on Hollywood Blvd. Further information will be send out as plans progress. Have a joyous Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
