- Put the containerized tomatoes in the ground towards the end of the month. Save some for April planting and few for May in case of weather problems.
- Paint all wounds on oak trees immediately to prevent oak wilt.
- It’s still too early to fertilize the lawn. It may begin to green up, but the root systems are not fully active until warmer weather arrives. Any greening that occurs this month is due to fall fertilization. “Weed-and- feed” type products only encourage weeds to grow more vigorously. Wait until next month to fertilize.
- Mow your Asiatic jasmine at the highest level on your mower to encourage a new growth of leaves.
