February is a great month to start in on

Garden projects.

 

1. Inspect stored bulbs for signs of rot or mold. Toss any damaged bulbs on your compost pile.

 

2. When winter brings ice, landscape plantings can suffer.  Prune any broken or damaged branches when temperatures are higher and all the ice is gone.

 

3. Grow some herbs in containers, such as fresh parsley.

 

4. Repot rootbound houseplants.

 

5.  Repurpose or refurbish garden art.
