Continue to water and fertilize cool-weather annuals such as snapdragons, Stocks, larkspur, pansies, violas and sweet alyssum to encourage the best blooms.

Now is an excellent time to transplant mature or established trees and shrubs while they are dormant.

Prepare beds and individual holes for rose planting in January and February. Use composted manure or similar materials mixed with existing soil.

Plan now for your spring flowering season with a mixture of annuals and perennials.
