in the garden…
April – Prepare for the season.
The forsythia is starting to bloom signaling the start of the new season.
Now is a good time to put down pre-emergent weed killer (available in our garden center) on your flower beds and borders – this will reduce weeding chores in the months ahead.
Cut back old and dead growth from last season’s perennials but avoid significant pruning – you don’t want to damage buds that are about to bloom. Remove damaged, diseased and deadwood.
As we move into consistently warmer days and the soil starts warming up you can start applying new mulch. If necessary, rejuvenate your soil before you apply new mulch.
For roses – as soon as you see tiny red buds forming, prune them back where required leaving 3 to 6 strong growing canes. Then apply their first seasonal feeding.
You can start planting your cool season annuals like snaps, violas, lobelias, and pansies.
You can plant trees, shrubs, and roses.
Now is a good time to aerate your lawn.
