The weather may
still be cold and dreary, but here’s how to get your garden
moving for spring.
Leaf disposal and Tool
Care – Continue to clean up and fix up before plants really get
growing. Rake leaves, pull obvious weeds, spruce up and sharpen
hand tools, and power tools.
Remove mulch from perennials and,
especially, bulbs once they show signs of new growth.
Cut back any perennials still
standing as well as ornamental grasses. Be sure to leave any
fresh green growth that might be starting at the base.
plants – As long as the soil is well-thawed, plant bare root
trees and shrubs as well as bare-root roses.
Planting Trees and
Shrubs – In coastal areas, plant container-grown trees, shrubs,
perennial herbs, ground covers, and perennial flowers. However,
farther inland and at higher elevations, make sure that you
don’t plant them any sooner than a month or so before your
regions last frost date.
When to plant – Wait
to plant warm-season annual flowers and vegetables until after
your regions last frost date.
Houseplant Basics –
Houseplant growth this month continues to be slow, so don’t
fertilize and keep watering to a minimum.
If you didn’t fertilize your lawn
last month, do so now either with an organic or a chemical
product. (You can also simply rake a ˝ inch of compost over
your lawn.) This is also the time to apply a crabgrass preventer,
if you choose. Check out products that combine the two, saving
If moss or fungal diseases are a
problem in your lawn, consider applying moss control or fungal
control lawn products, available at your garden center. These
can be applied nearly any time during the growing season.
Pruning Roses – If you
haven't already, prune deciduous fruit trees and also prune
roses. Spray both of them with horticultural oil to prevent
insect problems later.
Pruning Trees and
Shrubs – Prune trees and prune shrubs. Be careful with flowering
trees and shrubs – you don’t want to trim off developing buds.
In fact, as a rule of thumb, prune flowers shrubs and trees
within a month after they stop blooming. But do trim late-summer
or fall for blooming trees and shrubs.
Start Seeds Indoors –
Keep an eye on any seeds started indoors. They need gentle,
constant moisture but not too much.
Give them as much light as possible. Keep grow lights just an
inch or two above the plants.
Consider building a cold frame.
Wait to do any painting on outdoor structures until the
temperature has hit at least 60 degrees F. Otherwise, the paint
wont last as well.
