It is winter again, and you may be noticing that the ornamental plants in your Florida yard are starting to take a little bit of a turn for the worse. It happens every year. But, it doesn't have to. If you know what your ornamentals need, you can actually keep them looking nice all winter long.
What do winter ornamentals need? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer. It depends on the plant and what kind of winter conditions we have. But, one thing we know for sure is, if your ornamentals don't have the nutrition they need, and a higher level of protection from fungus and insects, they aren't going to thrive no matter what you do. This is especially true for any ornamental plants that have flowers. You are going to really notice when those plants aren't blooming. But, giving your ornamentals what they need is a complicated process that requires an understanding of plant growth, pest pressures, and fungal threats.
At Nozzle Nolen, our horticulture specialists have an education in plant maintenance, with an emphasis on the vegetation we have here in South Florida.
They know what increased rain and oversaturation can do to your ornamentals, as well as how these conditions can increase issues with fungus and plant disease. Nozzle Nolen is also a pest control company. That means your lawn care team will be aware of how oversaturation affects the bugs and wildlife that can attack your plants.
Our lawn care team knows what effect decreased temperatures can have on your plants and what fertilizers are needed to combat this. They understand what your ornamentals need to outgrow unwanted vegetation that performs better in cold temperatures.
