March 10, 2020 “Good Morning All, Continue pruning activities. If you got a late start on pruning that’s ok, you can still get it done. You can plant bulbs and watch for annual bedding plants at your local garden center. Plant container plants that you held over the winter and continue planting dormant woody plants. With the warming trend scout for insects on the new growth that is starting to emerge. Service your tools and equipment: sharpen blades, shovels, hoes, etc. and change the oil in mowers, tillers and other power tools. Don’t forget to sit down and enjoy the floral show of your landscape, it will be going on for the next few weeks. “He who plows, hopes; he who fertilizes, begs; but he who prunes, demands.” February 17, 2020 “With the warm wet winter, our plants are blooming and performing out of sync. With that said don’t rush into landscape/gardening activities too soon. Now is perfect time to prune our fruit trees (except blueberries and blackberries) and most of our ornamentals (not azaleas, hydrangeas, and gardenias) Apply pre-emergent herbicide to turf areas for control of warm season weeds. Mow winter weeds before making application of pre-emergent to ensure product gets to the proper zone. Avoid weed & feed type products. Also, do not fertilize now. You can still plant Irish potatoes, sweet peas, leafy greens, and radishes. Start your warm season vegetables (tomatoes, pepper, etc.) seeds inside. If you plan on planting tomatoes, watermelons, and squash, apply lime to those areas now. Continue planting woody plants that are dormant.”
