Feburary Gardening Tips

Flowers

  • Check stored bulbs, corms, and tubers – discard any that are soft or diseased

Garden

  • Order seeds

  • Cut-back raspberries

Lawn

  • Avoid walking on frozen lawns to prevent winter damage

Trees/Shrubs

  • Gently brush snow from trees and shrubs to prevent damage

  • De-icing salt is harmful, protect your trees and shrubs

 

Take advantage of occasional warm days to do some pre-season cleanup: remove fallen branches and debris.
