One last effort at weeding will help to improve the appearance of your garden throughout the winter.
Continue to watch for insect, slug, and snail, or disease damage throughtout the garden, and take the necessary steps to control the problem.
Don't rebark your flower beds just yet. Wait until Febrauary as I do. At this time all oak trees should have dropped their remaining leaves. Fresh bark will help with your weed problems and will improve the appearance of your landscape by 500 percent. Don't be cheap and rebark every year.
