Flower Power Garden Hour

Feb 6, 2022

This episode is the garden To Do list for the month of February – actually quite a busy month.

  • Fruit trees – spray liquid copper for peach leaf curl before they bloom. Also time to spray dormant oil if you have insects overwintering
  • Prune fruit trees, roses (except one time blooming), grapes, blackberries – ensure you have a few days of dry weather following. Hold off on pruning frost sensitive plants

  • Plant:
    • Broccoli, beets, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, chard, collards, kale, mustard, peas
    • Can start potatoes & radishes towards end of the month
    • Bare root roses, fruit trees
    • Can start tomatoes & peppers inside

  • Soil amendment: Get organic material in there for spring planting.  Compost, manure, beneficial nematodes

  • Cleanup: Weed control (don’t let them go to flower)
