Spring cleaning of garage, garden equipment, and tools should top the list of things to do this month. The time is right to plant new citrus and remove dead wood from old citrus trees. Weather is ideal this month for adding new spring planting to your garden and applying fertilizer to all plants. Hold off pruning frost damaged plants until April.
Be on the lookout for garden intruders by getting a jump on controlling spring insects before they emerge from the ground and begin to reproduce. Insects can take a beautiful landscape and turn it into shambles in no time. Contact your local pest Control Company or nursery for insect ID and the proper control.
It’s also a good idea to replace the battery in your irrigation controller; this will hold programmed schedules in case of a power outage.
