Prune/Maintain for April

posted Mar 23, 2013, 9:06 PM by Jennifer Bullman
  • Wait to prune spring blooming shrubs until after flowering. Azaleas are budding and blooming but resist the temptation to get them in shape and  WAIT until after they bloom to trim and prune.
  • Prepare planting beds for spring.  Test your soil for pH, nitrogen phosphorous and potassium and add appropriate fertilizer.
  • Every weed pulled now is a thousand you won’t have to pull later! To kill annoying weeds in your gravel, brick or stone paths, spray with plain white vinegar.  And instead of pulling those dandelions, try eating the young tender ones in a salad (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/dandelion-salad/).
