Great time to purchase perennials, annuals, shrubs, and trees with $10 off $50 purchase of live plants.
As we wait for warmer temperatures to arrive, now is a good time to get a head start on your flower beds and landscape.
- Prune fruit and shade trees, grapevines, and shrubs which bloom in summer and fall.
- Wait until spring bloomers, such as lilac and forsythia, are finished blooming before pruning them or you may trim off the flower buds.
- Remove mulch from perennials and roses gradually as plants show signs of new growth. Trim off dead parts.
- Remove those overwintering weeds growing in your planting beds; rake and fluff mulch after soil is dry.
- Trim ornamental grasses to 4-6″ above the ground so that the fresh new growth can grow up through them.
- Clean up any other debris from perennials.
- Perennials taking over certain sections of your bed… As perennials begin to push through the soil, divide and transplant (or share with others) summer and fall blooming perennials (such as astilbe, aster, bleeding heart, coral bells, daylilies, phlox and shasta daisies). Perennials grow best in well-drained soil with plenty of organic matter
