Winter Damage Control

by Rowan Marney / March 2, 2021

After Austin’s hard freezes and power outages, you may notice that some of your plants are looking a little sad. Before you throw them away, we have a few tips and tricks so that you can try and bring them back to life!

For Tropicals, Cacti, Succulents, and other indoor plants:

  1. Check new and old growth for damage. Damage can present itself through wrinkling, browning, yellowing, or wilting.
  2. Feel if stem is solid or soft. If it feels soft, cut back to where the plant feels to be most solid. The inside of the plant should be completely green. Any browning or discoloration  means that you need to cut back further.
  3. Fertilize using SUPERthrive or Rose Glo, as well as using liquid seaweed at the next watering cycle will help the plant drastically. Biomatrix also works to help stimulate roots and encourage new growth.
  4. Play the waiting game to see if the plant bounces back this spring. If new growth appears healthy, the plant should be in the clear!

For outdoor landscaping and potted plants:

  1. Cut back shrubbery by no more than 1/3 of the plant’s overall size and fertilize.
  2. Cut perennials down to ground level and fertilize.
  3. Trees that began to bud before the storm may not bloom again this spring (Mountain Laurel, fruiting trees, etc)
  4. For younger trees, any branches that are still bent after the ice melts should be removed.
  5. To check to see if a woody plant is alive, carefully scrape the bark with a knife. If it shows green, the plant is still alive.
  6. Container plants that were left outside most likely took on a ton of damage. Cut back damaged areas and water using a fertilizer. Then it’s a waiting game to see if the plant will grow back this spring.
  7. Fertalizers we recommend are Microlife 6-2-4 for perennials, trees, and shrubs. Rose Glo or SUPERthrive for annuals, vegetables, herbs, container plants, houseplants, cacti, and succulents. And liquid seaweed for anything and everything!

Instead of looking at the situation as a loss, try and see it as a blank slate to try something new. All of these products and more can be found at Garden Seventeen! Let us help get your landscaping and plant collection back and better than ever!

“We are so excited and honored to receive this award!” said Rodney Stoutenger, the Owner and Lead Designer at Native Edge. “From the beginning, this company has been about doing things differently. This positive response really speaks to the level of commitment we have for our customers.”

Native Edge Landscape, was founded in 2008 as Owner Rodney Stoutenger became more and more frustrated with the hassles commonly plaguing the residential landscape industry. “I wanted to fix the disconnect between the design, installation and maintenance of projects,” said Rodney. “Often a designer hands off their work to a customer and they are left to fend for themselves. A new landscape is already a heavy investment, and having to coordinate the frustrating process of installing the landscape should not be a headache for the customer to take on. At Native Edge Landscape, we provide an integrated and personalized process, walking with the customer through every step of the operation.”

“Houzz provides homeowners with the most comprehensive view of home building, remodeling and design professionals, empowering them to find and hire the right professional to execute their vision,” said Liza Hausman, vice president of community for Houzz. “We’re delighted to recognize Native Edge Landscape among our “Best Of” professionals for customer satisfaction as judged by our community of homeowners and design enthusiasts who are actively remodeling and decorating their homes.”
