March + April Gardening Tips
Early spring is an exciting time when we are itching to be out in our yards and tending to our gardens. Since it is usually a bit too early to really do a lot outdoors, we would suggest that you take some time to plan your vegetable garden or design flowerbeds. Starting a gardening journal is also fun and can be very useful in future years as a resource for what worked and what did not. It is also helpful to keep track of what plants were used and how things were laid out.
While the weather is still questionable it is a good idea to clean, sharpen or replace hand tools. Service power equipment and sharpen lawn mower blades. Organize tool sheds and storage areas.
As the weather improves here is a list of spring gardening tips.
TREE CARE TIPS
• Peaches, plums, cherries and apricot should be pruned in early March. Prune any other fruit trees that were not done in February.
• Finish any shade tree pruning not completed in February.
• Apply horticulture oil to fruit trees, shade trees and shrubs to help control insects such as aphids, scale and mites. Dormant disease control can be used with oil sprays on fruit trees at this time.
• Systemic borer control can be applied to shade trees in early March. Use especially on Locust, Ash, Poplar, Aspen, Flowering Cherry, Willows and Honeylocust.
• Spray for Aspen Leaf Spot at the first sign of green on the leaf buds.
• Spray for Fire Blight when pear and crabapples are in bloom.
• Remove all winter tree wraps to avoid over heating of tree bark.
• Fertilize shade and fruit trees. Some trees may need an application of iron in March and then again in May.
• Deep soak trees and shrubs if the winter and spring have been dry.
LAWN & POND CARE TIPS
• Get Dino-mite on your vegetable gardens.
• Treat lawn and flower gardens with fertilizer and pre-emergent
• When pond water reaches 50 degrees, feed your fish and add beneficial bacteria to your pond
