 This Month’s Tips

  • Tune up lawn mower and garden equipment before the busy season begins
  • Have soil tested to determine its nutrient needs. For more information, contact your local Extension Office for a list of testing laboratories
  • Repair winter damage to trees and shrubs
  • Incorporate cover crops or other organic matter into soil
  • Prune and train grapes; make cuttings
  • Prune fruit trees and blueberries
  • Plant asparagus if the ground is warm enough
  • Plant seed flats of cold crops (cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts), indoors or in a greenhouse
  • Where soil is dry enough and workable, plant garden peas and sweet peas. (use link to see suggested varieties)
  • Monitor landscape plants for problems. Don’t treat unless a problem is identified
  • Monitor for European crane fly and treat lawns if damage has been verified
