Garden Tips

Garden Tips For February:

1).  Conifers have evolved the characteristic conical shape to shed snow efficiently.
2).  The compost pile needs turning in the winter too
3).  Soak the soil when watering succulents…let it then dry completely before watering again.
4).  Providing bottom heat speeds up germination and produces healthier roots and plants.
5).  Mail carriers will often not deliver to mailboxes blocked by snow.
6).  Connecticut has gained roughly two hours of daylight since the winter solstice.
7).  Shelled sunflower seeds result in less of a mess under the bird feeder.
