Garden Tips For January 2020:
1). Kitchen waste: fruit, eggshells, coffee grounds, vegetable scraps are excellent for composting.
2). Do not remove snow or ice frozen on a plant. The removal could cause more damage to the plant.
3). A full sun planting area is best for Blue spruce trees.
4). Overripe fruit gives off ethylene gas which hastens nearby fruit to ripen.
5). Water houseplants when the top 1 to 2 inches of soil feels dry.
6). Native plants evolved with and support native pollinators.
