Wow- spring has sprung!
A few tips for garden tasks in the early spring:
*spray fruit trees with dormant oil spray just as the flowers buds are about to open.
*Apply snail bait often- they're herrrrrrrrre! Use "Sluggo" for gardens with pets and wildlife.
*Trim back subtropicals to keep them from getting leggy i.e. fuchsias, abutilon, bougainvillea,
hibiscus, angels trumpet etc....
*Pull weeds just after the rain- they come out with root and all when the soil is wet.
*Fertilize plants and add iron chelate for yellowing plants so that the spring rains will wash it in.
*Prune tips of Crape Myrtles and old flower heads (seed pods) for better flowering and a fuller tree.
Enjoy the garden- it is a great time of year and so much fun!
