It’s Official. Spring has Sprung.
It’s been a long, cold winter and just about every gardener I know is itching to get outside.
There’s plenty to do, too.
There’s also plenty of time.
While it’s too early for many warm-season gardening tasks, like planting tomatoes and peppers or sowing cucumber seeds, there still are many lawn and garden tasks…
Here are 9 to try:
- Plant cool-season veggies: broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, onions, lettuce, peas, radish, spinach, and other greens.
- Prune shrubs to remove dead branches and crossing branches.
- Sow tomato and pepper seeds, if you haven’t already.
- Place catalog orders for specialty perennials.
- Pull back mulch wherever green shoots have started sprouting.
- Sketch out vegetable garden bed plan.
- Cut back ornamental grasses.
- Apply pre-emergent herbicides to prevent grassy and broadleaf lawn weeds.
- Schedule lawn aeration.
