Spring Tips

  • Vegetable Gardens. You can start getting your vegetable beds prepped now. Turn peat moss, compost or organic fertilizer in your bed for a healthy start. Rotate crop placement to avoid diseases. Cold crops will be available soon.

  • Summer Flowering Bulbs. Time to start summer flowering bulbs inside. Elephant Ears, Dahlias and much more.

  • Lawn. Almost time for crabgrass preventer (step 1 of the 4-step program). Soil temperatures need to be in the mid 50's. Don't work your lawn until everything is dry.

  • Birding. Orioles and Hummingbirds will be arriving soon. Vistit the Gertens Bird's nest for their special needs.
