Flowering In: February

As February unfolds, gardeners can embark on several essential activities to prepare for the approaching spring. In colder regions, continue monitoring frost conditions and safeguard vulnerable plants. Pruning tasks remain relevant, focusing on the removal of dead or damaged branches and shaping shrubs for a more controlled growth pattern. Gardeners can also indulge in soil preparation by incorporating organic matter and compost, enriching the soil for the upcoming growing season. While the outdoor floral display is still in its infancy, some early-blooming plants begin to unfurl their blossoms in February. Examples include Daphne and Mahonia injecting a burst of color and vitality into the garden landscape. Embracing these gardening activities in February sets the stage for a flourishing and vibrant garden in the months to come.
