The holidays are over, what should I do with my Christmas tree?

Don’t just toss that tannenbaum, try these alternate ways repurpose your Christmas tree.

    • ‘Plant’ your tree outside. Go out and stick it in the snow. Birds love evergreens for protection in the winter months. This is also a great way to visualize any future tree placements!
    • Use the boughs as cover. Do you have a spot near your house that is always bare in the winter? Use the boughs as insulation for perennials flower beds where snow cover is unreliable.
    • Make coasters and trivets. Saw the trunk into ½ inch rounds, sand until smooth and coat with polyurethane. These make a great gift.
    • Feed the fire. Make it a party and burn it in an outdoor fire pit. It’s best to wait a few months for the wood to dry out. Solstice party anyone?
    • Recycle it. Drop off undecorated and tinsel-free trees for free at the rodeo grounds in Jackson any time before the end of January or, for a small fee, recycle it at the  transfer station in Driggs.

5 Ways to Help your Houseplants this Winter

Keeping houseplants healthy through the winter months can be a little tricky. Shorter day length, lower humidity and temperature variations can add up to tough growing conditions. Follow these simple tips to keeping your houseplants in top form all winter:

      1. Keep your room as bright as possible. Raise blinds and open the curtains as much as possible. For sun-loving plants such as succulents, consider moving them to a brighter spot to maximize the light they receive.
      2. Keep room temperature between 60 and 70. Keep plants away from drafty windows or doors. Conversely, keep them away from wood stoves and hot air vents. Night time temperatures on the cooler side is best.
      3. Increase the humidity. Group plants together and mist frequently. Use a commercially made pebble tray or place a layer of pebbles in the saucer underneath the plants to raise the humidity.
      4. Water and fertilize less. Plants enjoy a time of rest in the winter months, so fertilizing is not necessary. The potting soil should be completely dry before watering. Use tepid water, and water slowly until it seeps out of the drainage holes in the pot.
      5. Give them a shower. With plants that can be easily moved, bring them to a sink and hose them off with tepid water. This gets rid of dust and small insects such as spider mites and aphids.

When your houseplants are in good shape, you’ll also improve the air quality in your home for your plants and for you!

Back Yard Birding

Tip of the Month
Fill new bird feeders about half full until birds start to notice it. That way, the seed won’t spoil as you wait for birds to find your feeder.
