Seasonal Landscape Design Tips

  • Purchase vegetable and flower seeds now while selection is broad.
  • Start seeds for spring or summer-blooming annuals, vegetables and perennials.  Follow the directions on individual seed packets for requirements for bottom heat, light or darkness.  Some seeds might require a short period of chilling before being sown.
  • Check soil moisture around all your plants; with the relatively dry winter and spotty precipitation, you may find dry areas around at least some of your plants. Water accordingly.
  • Continue to check plants for signs of damage from animals or weather.
  • To prevent weeds, apply Hi-Yield Herbicide Granules pre-emergent to planting beds when you see early signs of spring such as crocus emerging or the forsythia blooming – applying at this time will control many cool season weeds.
  • To control both grassy and broadleaf weeds in lawns, apply Bonide Weedbeater Complete, a pre-emergent and post-emergent, in late February or early March as weather permits.
