Spring Garden Calendar
From pruning to mowing to fertilizing, here's everything you should be doing right now to grow a beautiful garden.
Zones 6-8: April
•Tropicals: Set plants outside when night temperatures reach above 50ºF. Place plants in shade, and water well. Fertilize two weeks later.
•Shrubs: Prune spring-flowering shrubs, such as azalea and gardenia, after they bloom. Feed with an acidic fertilizer after flowering.
•Bulbs: Allow spring foilage to ripen naturally before removing. Mark bulb groupings that didn't flower well, and plan to dig and divide them in fall.
