Let Your Garden Thrive!

  • Lawns -- A beautiful green lawn consistently needs 1" of water per week. If you have a lawn sprinkler system, setting the timer is a great idea. If you manually water your lawn, it may be a good idea to run a simple test to determine how long it takes to accumulate 1" of water. Use an empty can and fill the water until it is 1" full. That is the amount of time it takes for you to water one segment of your lawn so water accordingly.
  • Shrubs and Trees -- Flowering shrubs and trees should be pruned and fertilized after blooming. It is important to do this before the summer heat begins.
  • Flowers and Bulbs -- The seeds of most annuals may be sown in beds after April 15. Summer annuals are commonly purchased in packs of 6, 12 and 18 with the root system already established. Weed garden beds frequently.
  • Vegetables -- Let weather and soil temperatures govern your vegetable planting. Usually by the end of April, it is a safe bet to plant most tender vegetables. Consult with a gardening professional at your local gardening center if you are unsure about starting your vegetable garden.
  • April Blooms -- The most common April blooms are Irises, Tulips, Azaleas, Lilacs, Spireas, and Dogwoods.

Once again, please enjoy these gardening tips for April and let you gardens thrive!
