Seasonal Ideas & Information For February 2021
  • Vegetables & Herbs - Our transplants are arriving daily. Tomatoes, lettuce, strawberries, chives, oregano, tarragon, rosemary, basil, sage, and more. If you start your plants from seeds, it is time to get them started: arugula, beets, carrots, lettuce, and radishes. We have a large selection to choose from, including organics. We can also help you select the right soil, compost, and fertilizer for your garden. Spring Vegetable Planting Guide

Join the beet renaissance! As the popularity of growing beets is increasing, all root vegetables are experiencing a culinary renaissance.
Beets come in a variety of colors, shapes, and textures, but all are highly nutritious, including significant amounts of fiber, potassium, folic acid, and vitamin C.
Betalains are powerful antioxidants that give red beets their red hue and unique flavor. Gold beets are rich in b-xanthin pigment.
Beets are grown in all areas of the country, and plants take up very little garden space.

  • Fruits & Nuts - Early February is the best time of the year to prune fruit trees, vines, and bushes. However, do not prune fruit trees until all danger of frost/freeze events has passed. To protect your fruit trees from pests, apply dormant oil or Neem oil before new growth emerges in the Spring. Do not apply oil sprays within 24 hours of a freeze.
  • Perennials & Annuals - If your cool-season beds are looking ragged, give them a light fertilization followed by a good watering to start the process of releasing nutrients to the plants. Now is the time to divide summer and fall blooming perennials and bulbs. Ornamental grasses can also be divided. Plant cool-season color: Delphinium, Gerber Daisies, Geraniums, Pansies, Snapdragons and Alyssum.

  • Trees, Shrubs & Vines - February is a great month to plant roses. Consider planting shrub roses (Drift Rose and Knockout Rose) as they bloom repeatedly through the year. Make sure to choose a sunny location and one with good drainage. We can help you select soil and fertilizer for your roses. February is also the month for pruning existing roses in your landscape.

  • Lawns - If you are going to use a pre-emergent on your lawn to control weeds, now is the time to apply. Corn gluten is the organic approach and that is what we recommend.
