Landsburg Nursery Gardener’s Calendar

landsburgLandsburg Nursery has a Gardener’s Calendar with lots of gardening tips for each month.

General Spring Season Tips
  • Begin feeding bulbs with liquid fertilizer as they emerge from the ground.
  • Remove dead leaves from Hostas.
  • Prune summer flowering shrubs in early spring before new growth, since they usually bloom from new wood.
March
  • Finish dormant pruning of ornamental trees.
  • Remove black-knot swellings on plum, chokecherry, and cherry trees.
April
  • Remove Tree wrap from trees.
  • As weather allows, remove winter mulch from roses, perennials and bulbs.
  • Divide and replant overgrown perennials.
  • Prune hedges and summer flowering shrubs, i.e., Annabella Hydrangea, Currant and Potentilla. Check for winter snow damage and prune out broken branches.
  • Till flower and vegetable garden soil and add composted cow manure, peat moss or composted leaves.
  • Fertilize spring bulbs when foliage emerges.
  • Plant frost-tolerant pansies and Johnny-jump-ups for early spring color.
  • Apply fresh mulch around trees and shrubs for weed control.
  • Fertilize trees and shrubs with osmocote. We recommend slow release fertilizer.
  • Wait until the ground is frost free before removing mulch. If temperatures rise early in the season remove part of the mulch, but leave 2-3 inches.
  • Till or spade the soil deeply; if desired add a slow-release flower garden fertilizer.
  • Cut back ornamental grasses.
  • Remove rose cones.
