Gardening Tips

Late Winter Gardening Tips

-Prune trees and shrubs now. Don’t prune shrubs that bloom in early spring. Wait to prune these until after they bloom.

-Use dormant oils on fruit trees and any other plants that had major insect problems last year.

-Clean up leaves and other yard debris that has blown in over the winter.

-Remove snow and ice from tree limbs and branches to prevent breakage if we get a heavy, wet snow.

-Begin planning your summer garden!

-Purchase seeds and bulbs now for best selection. As some of you know, supplies ran short last year.

-Start planting trees and shrubs as the ground begins to thaw in your area.

-Start tomato and pepper seeds soon.

-Don’t forget to give your newly planted (in 2019 or 2020) plants a drink if it remains dry.
