Get ready for SPRING! February is for PLANNING!
For vegetable gardens, make lists of which varieties you'd like and make a layout in your garden to ensure you have enough room and optimal places for everything.
If you're planning on adding color beds, new landscaping, or trees, you can use February to create a design, construct the beds, and amend the soil.
Attention to your soil NOW, in the way of pre-emergent, will pay off in the spring and summer by preventing weeds such as crabgrass and sticker burrs.
Don't forget to pick up your 2016 Farmer's Almanac!
PLANT TENDER VEGGIES (SEEDS - START INSIDE!): tomatoes & some herbs, peppers - See our fabulous selection of Botanical Interests seeds. Plan to begin setting out as transplants in late February through April, as long as you are able to protect from frost and wind damage!
PREPARE: Potatoes - purchase, encourage eye growth, cut & get ready to plant outside starting on George Washington's birthday - Feb. 22.
