Perhaps you've added some young flowering trees to your landscaping this year. If so, this is probably just the time of year that you're starting to drool over the prospects of enjoying their flowering next spring.... It's cold outside, and you're sitting by the fireplace, just imagining what all those blooms will look like. But wait!

Winterizing your flowering trees will give them a better chance to meet your lofty expectations. Find out how from Steve Jones, in a Plant Man column that offers winter tree care tips that you can apply now, in late autumn. Consider this a companion piece to my own guide to winterizing shrubs.
