Continue to transplant small trees and shrubs during their dormant phase. Plant a camellia for winter color in the yard. Water plants heavily at least 24 hours before freeze...helps to increase cold tolerance. Group outdoor potted plants tightly to increase cold resistance. Ryegrass will need to be fertilized and mowed. Many bulbs can be planted now for spring and summer bloom for next year. Place holiday plants in good sunlight and cool temperatures for long-lasting blooms. Prune dormant, fruit and ornamental trees, now. Harvest all citrus, only if a freeze below 28 degrees is expected to last for several hours. Do not harvest just because a freeze is predicted. Have a Happy Holiday Season!
