FEBRUARYis a great time to fertilize your trees! Use an 8-8-8 nutrient ratio at a rate of 2 pounds for each inch of the tree trunk. Be sure to spread the fertilizer under the entire canopy of the tree.
The "knock on wood" tradition comes from a time when primitive pagans used to tap or knock on trees to summon the protective spirits that resided in them.
Now is A Great Time To Trim and Fertilize Your Knockout and Drift Roses!
Trim 25% off the height to control their size. Spray with a copper fungicide and fertilize with a well balanced rose food 6-12-6 NPK. Jefferson Feed Garden Center has everything you need to make your roses both healthy and beautiful!
Are the leaves of your Azaleas no longer green? It could be due to seasonal leaf drop or, if you see insects, lace bugs are the culprit!
Spray the entire plant with Horticultural Oil, including the underside of the leaves. I would recommend at least 3 applications at two week intervals. Do not trim the plant at this time. Make sure to follow the directions on the bottle for proper rates. Horticultural oil can be used on all of your other shrubs too!
February is also the perfect month to trim back Liriope, Asian Jasmine, Ardesia, Monkey grass, and all grassy plants. Trim now to remove unsightly leaves and control size. We find a weed eater works really well!
