• February is a great month to get a jump start on your yard and garden! A few of the projects that A to Z can help with include:

    Pruning of roses, fruit trees and summer and fall blooming shrubs. Late winter offers a key pruning window for these guys.

    Complete any remaining yard clean up. A to Z can help you with tasks such as picking up any remaining dead leaves, cutting back any ornamental grasses and perennials before new stems shoot up.

    Planting of bare root fruit trees, roses and cane berries. During the dormant season, these plants have a better chance of thriving through the planting process. Additionally, it is during this time of year that the selection of these plants is the most abundant and purchasing them is the most economical.

    Weeding and Mulching. Weed and mulch beds particularly where spring bulbs, and early blooming perennials are planted. This is a great time to do this while these plants are still dormant or just beginning to sprout up.

    Perennial Preparation. Divide and move hardy perennials such as raspberries, spirea, and Shasta daisies. Trade extras with friends, neighbors, and family.

    Dormant spraying for fruit trees and roses. If there were fungal problems, like black spots on the leaves or fruit, during past growing seasons, now is the time to correct this.
