Water landscape plants underneath wide eaves and in other sites shielded from rain.
Reapply and or redistribute mulches that have blown or washed away during winter. Black Forest compost is our favorite mulch.
Use dormant sprays of oil or copper fungicide on fruit trees and roses for general preventative disease and insect control. Come ask one of our garden center professionals for a recommendation. Follow-up with a 2nd application in about 4 to 6 weeks.
Monitor houseplants for correct water and fertilizer; clean and dust off leaves. Allow plants to dry out between watering and generally reduce water for winter. Over watering damage may be corrected with Oxygen Plus.
Treat yourself to an early spring! Gather branches of quince, forsythia, flowering cherry, pussy willow, etc. Bring indoors and place in a vase of water to force an early bloom.
