Here are some planting tips from The NY Botanical Garden.

  • Remove mulches and debris from beds.

  • Fertilize the flower beds of early blooming bulbs.

  • Prune the deciduous trees to help shape them or keep them in line. But don’t prune spring-flowering shrubs or plants except to correct problems.

  • If you are growing some plants indoors to plant in your garden later, now is the time to plant those seeds. After 8-10 weeks of growth, you can plant them in your garden.

  • Test lawn soil and apply lime if needed.

  • Continue to plant evergreen and deciduous trees and shrubs.

  • Plant seedlings of strawberries, cauliflower, cabbage and broccoli if soil is workable.

  • Sow seeds for peas, carrots and radishes.

  • Re-seed bare areas of your lawn.

Good luck with your yard and garden.
