Whether your bed is new or established, give your plants a boost with Geo Growers Home Brewed Compost Tea and an Archaea supplement to boost the microbial health of your soil.
Despite the unusually warm weather so far, it is best to resist the temptation to zealously fertilize your lawn. It is best to apply Corn Gluten Meal or a light topping of Geo Grower’s Turf Topper Soil to your Bermuda grass, but avoid the Corn Gluten Meal on your St. Augustine and stick with a light topping of Geo Grower’s Turf Topper Soil. Too much nitrogen in February is not the best thing for the lawn.
Continue to protect tender plants before a freeze.
February also means it’s time to prune. Start during the middle of February,by shaping your rose bushes and give them some care in the form of Turkey Compost or fertilizer.
Prune fruit trees if needed and make sure to paint/seal the prune sites.
Shear hedges to shape. Shear hardy herbs as needed. Oregano, Rosemary, Savory, and Thyme will especially benefit from a late-winter makeover. Cut woody perennials such down to 12” segments. When new growth appears at the base, cut the old stems nearly to the ground to eliminate unsightly dead sticks.
