Candice's Corner:  Tips from the Master Gardener

Spring is almost upon us and our gardens!  March is a busy time for gardeners so we've got a few tips to help you get your garden ready for the warmer temps.

  • Our last "killing frost" will occur right around March 15th.
  • Prune any "freeze damage" in mid-March.
  • House plants:
    • Repot over grown plants
    • Prune plants as needed 
  • Do your trees or plants have pests?  Now is the time for pest control.  Ask us for help deciding what pest control is best for you!  And, know your pests!  You can't treat them, if you don't know what they are and what they are doing to your landscape.
  • Ask us for fertilizer advice!
  • Start hanging baskets of petunias, ferns and others for another dimension in landscape color.
  • You can plant warm-season annual flowers and vegetables late in the month AFTER the last frost date.
  • Select and plant spring-flowering shrubs, trees and vines. March is a good time to make your selections, while they are in full bloom.
  • Pruning of evergreens and summer flowering trees and shrubs should be completed in early March.
  • Protect roses against black spot and mildew with appropriate fungicide applied weekly.
