TIP 1: Add organic matter, such as Mushroom Compost or Organic Soil Conditioner, to new and existing beds to ready and rejuvenate for spring planting.
TIP 2:March is a good time to note areas of poor drainage. If there are pools of water in your yard that do not drain, fill in the low spot or scoop out a channel for the water to drain away.
TIP 3:After your spring flowering bulbs start to sprout about 4″- 5″, feed your bulbs with Espoma’s Bulb Tone to invigorate green growth and replenish depleted soil nutrients.
TIP 4:Feed your Pansies ~ To get the WOW factor this spring, they need to be deadheaded and fed. Ferti-lome Premium Pansy Food works well. In 30 days they should look marvelous.
TIP 5: If insects on your roses or shrubs were a problem in the garden last year, consider a dormant oil spray. Fruit trees will also do well with dormant oil spray.
