Some evergreen shrubs can get burned by winter winds or suffer sun or frost damage. One way to help them through the winter is by spraying the leaves with an anti-desiccant so they don’t dry out.
An accelerated spring means many plants will bloom sooner than expected, which can also mean earlier pruning.
The ASPCA offers several suggestions of spring gardening safety with your pets in mind.
They’re beautiful, native and blooming right now. Virginia bluebells, Latin name Mertensia virginica, are woodland plants that you can easily grow in moist, shady spots in your yard.
By bringing some branches inside you can ‘force’ the flowers to bloom before your eyes.
Isn’t there something you’re supposed to prune before the Fourth of July? Oh yeah, your azaleas. And there some other timely garden chores as well.
No matter how bad things seem in the middle of winter, it’s important not to panic, prune or plan to yank everything out. Why not wait and see how things look later in the spring?
