Planting Tips


 

Garden Maintenance


 

  ♦ Early season vegetable starts can be planted. 

  ♦ Sow peas directly in the soil. Using an inoculant helps produce strong plants with a bountiful harvest.

  ♦ Read your seed packets for sprouting times and growth. Start some inside or in greenhouses now. Use a sterile seed starting mix. The tiny roots can spread in this more easily than regular soil.

  ♦ Primroses and potted bulbs can add color to your outdoor pots.

  ♦ Trees and shrubs can be planted now and will get lots of natural irrigation.

 

  ♦ Time to prune! Fruit trees, grapes, and berries can be done now.

  ♦ Don't forget to sterilize your cutting tools between plants so you do not spread disease.

  ♦ Use dormant spray on your fruit trees.

  ♦ Time to prune! Look at your japanese maples. Now is an excellent time to correct their form.

  ♦ Time to prune! Roses can be done later in the month.

  ♦ Cut back your red twig dogwood. Use the branches in a Valentine arrangement!

  ♦ Seek out hidden slug eggs and destroy them.

  ♦ Control moles and gophers.
