First year care for your hardy avocado should include a deep mulch over the root system. Pile 6 inches of leaves or pine needles on the soil around the tree, starting a couple of inches away from the trunk to keep the roots warm. Water trees well prior to a freeze and drape the young trees with frost cloth for added protection.
Fall is the perfect time to plant snapdragons. Although they do not bloom in the winter, if planted in the fall the young plants become mature by spring. Cut back the tall flower stalks once they have finished blooming and the plants will usually triple in size over the winter. Once the weather warms in the spring they burst into bloom.
