|Zone 7 Monthly Gardening To Do List
We had a few warm days recently, and some of my bulbs got the foolish idea that spring was near.
In the event of snow, be sure to shake or brush off the white stuff from the branches
Dormant spraying of fruit trees, Cotoneaster, Dogwoods, etc. should be done this month.
It’s a good time to prune most of your deciduous trees and shrubs.
Forsythia, Jasmine, Pussy Willow and Quince sprays can be cut and brought into the house now for forcing.
Fireplace ashes should be saved to use a fertilizer for your Iris and other alkaline soil plants.
If the ground is workable at all (not frozen and not too wet), now is an excellent time to turn the soil.
Don’t forget about caring for your house plants!
