Spring Garden Calendar
From pruning to mowing to fertilizing, here's everything you should be doing right now to grow a beautiful garden.
Zones 3-5: April
•Perennials: Dig and divide summer- and fall-blooming perennials. Mulch beds to reduce water needs.
•Grass: Feed cool-season lawns with a slow-release fertilizer. Sharpen the mower blade, and set it to remove no more than one-third the total grass height in one cutting.
•Veggies: Sow cool-season vegetables, including lettuce, radish, and greens. Set out transplants of broccoli and cauliflower.
