Gardening Tasks For April:

Clean-up. Spread Compost/Bark around trees and shrubs-a key ingredient to any successful landscape. Applying a natural Hardwood mulch reduces soil water loss, suppresses weeds, protects against temperature extremes, and provides a nice aesthetic finish to your landscaping beds; 3” annually is sufficient for all your needs. Be careful when using the wood mulches and dyed products as they have the tendency to steal nitrogen away from your plants.

Apply Pre-emergent herbicide for crabgrass control

Divide late-blooming Perennials

Spring Bulbs:

Q: Why don’t tulips come back with the same vigor they showed the first year?
A: Well, we hate to burst your bubble if you are a tulip grower, but we almost consider them an annual bulb anymore because of all their associated problems. Many possibilities exist for their second year disappearance act. They could have been pulled off or cleaned up too early. Maybe they weren’t planted deep enough (6-8”) or insect and disease invaded them. Perhaps the fastest growing problem among tulips is the threat that rodents present. Little critters love digging for these hidden treasures. This is one reason why daffodils always come back, because they are poisonous to most rodents. The conclusion: If your still determined to see a beautiful tulip display every spring, plan on planting a new batch every Fall. (Back to Top)

When it comes to spring bulbs, especially tulips and daffodils, size does matter. Make sure you know what your buying….the bigger, the better.

Easter Lily:
Q:Can you plant your Easter Lily outside after it is done blooming?
A: Of Course!! Easter Lilies make great garden plants and will return year after year with summer blooms. When planted outside, they bypass Easter and wait until summer to show off their blossoms. The key to pulling this off is to plants the bulbs deep and in well drained soil. Once the Lily is done blooming inside, remove the faded flowers and cut off the top of the stem. Carefully remove the plant from the pot and plant it slightly deeper than originally growing. The ideal location to place your Lily would be in the morning sun and afternoon shade.
