SPRING GARDENING TIPS

Spring is a great time to evaluate the condition of your yard and garden. The American Nursery & Landscape Association (ANLA) offers the following “clip and save list” of springtime gardening chores. 

  • Launch a lawn maintenance program. Fertilize seed or mow, based on turf requirements.
  • Apply pre-emergent weed control according to label.
  • Prepare flower beds. Till soil and remove dead plant material, including winter mulch. Add aged manure or compost to keep beds healthy. Spread a layer of new mulch and divide perennials, if necessary. 
  • Plant new perennials before summer heat begin.
  • Cut back ornamental grasses.
  • Prune spring flowering shrubs after bloom: azaleas, clerodendron, etc.
  • Prune broad-leafed evergreens like hollies to reduce size or maintain shape.
  • Prune young specimen trees before they leaf out. Remove damaged and crossing branches or limbs which may be obstructing pedestrians and structures. Pruning encourages a strong central leader branch and an attractively shaped tree.
  • Fertilize young trees and shrubs to encourage growth.
  • Visit a garden center for an inspiring way to celebrate spring!
