Garden Tips

Garden Tips For April:

1).  Prune summer and fall flowering shrubs before flower buds develop.
2).  Apply pre-emergence crabgrass control when forsythia is in bloom.
3).  Cool season plants such as lettuce, parsley, cabbage and kale can be planted outdoors.
4).  Pansies are a colorful addition to an early spring planter or flower bed.
5).  Divide fall blooming perennials in the spring.
6).  Add lime to raise the ph or sulfur to lower soil ph.
7).  Mulch should be 2-4” deep…too deep can reduce water infiltration.
