Right now in season are grapefruits, navel oranges, pineapples, tangerines, cauliflower, new potatoes, and rhubarb.  Did you know that you can plant many of these fruits and veggies in garden planters.  We offer tons of tips on planting these and more here in our blog sections.  Check them out!

Prune your roses.  Early spring is the time to shape and trim most rosebushes.  Remove the damaged or diseased branches.  If you have ever blooming plants, prune even more to encourage healthy flowering all season.  Climbers, which we love, and shrub roses that bloom just once, however, should be pruned only after flowers fade.  All roses are easy to pot and if you set the pot next to a garden wall or decorative pillar it's easy to get them to climb.

Continue to fertilize houseplants, prune and re-pot if necessary.  To be sure plants on windowsills get an even amount of light , rotate the pots a quarter turn each day.  You can always place the heavier pots on a lazy suzan for easy turning.
Open the windows and let the fresh air come into your home.  Do the same in the attic and basement if you have those.  Your potted plants are not the only things that need fresh air throughout the year.

Outside check all potted trees for broken or damaged limbs.  Clean winter debris from top of potted plants so the top soil is exposed.  Remove, leaves, and brush that may of blown onto them.  Remove winter mulch you may of placed on top to protect them.  Bring your summer blooms out of storage and the garden bulbs that you have.  Pot them and start watering them now or keep them inside till after the last frost.
 
Spring is coming - be prepared.
