 This Month’s Tips

  • Tune up lawn mower and garden equipment before the busy season begins.

  • Have soil tested to determine its nutrient needs. Here is a list of Laboratories Serving Oregon: Soil, Water, Plant Tissue, and Feed Analysis (EM 8677).

  • Prune and train grapes; make cuttings.
  • Prune fruit trees and blueberries.
  • Prune deciduous summer-blooming shrubs and trees.
  • Sign up for one of our hands-on pruning workshops.
  • Good time to plant fruit trees and deciduous shrubs. Replace varieties of ornamental plants that are susceptible to disease with resistant cultivars.
  • Plant seed flats of cole crops (cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, and Brussels sprouts), indoors or in a greenhouse.
  • Monitor landscape plants and lawns for problems. Don’t treat unless a problem is identified.  Contact us with your questions.
