February Do's In The Garden.
Gardeners are sitting on go during the month of February.
A few things most of us can do now regardless where we are located.
Plant cool season vegetables. (kale, lettuce, onions, cabbage, and some greens.)
Divide any perennials you wish to seperate, have rootings from, etc. ( rosemary, thyme, sage, some lavenders, and oregano.)
Prune fruit trees and roses. (There are many good websites that will guide you in the
proper way to prune.)
Plant fruit trees and roses.
Plant regional bulbs. ( calla lillies, etc.)
Clean your garden tools and wash and disinfect any pots and planters from last year.
Order any seed or transplants you wish to have by planting time in your area.
( most places will ship according to your growing zone.)
I'm looking forward to the spring. To feel the warm sunshine on my face, the dirt between my fingers and watch the beginning of life take shape as the tiny little growths spring up here and there.
What's your garden plans , do share~~
Have a Fun February~~in the garden !
