April 2012

Below are our top 5 tips for April when Spring begins to kick in to full swing.

Gardening tips for April

  • April is a great time to select and plant fruit trees and berry plants.
  • Apply spring type of lawn fertilizer to help perk up the lawn and improve its over-all color and appearance. If there is moss growing in the lawn, use spring lawn fertilizer that has the moss-killer included, so you can do both jobs in one easy application.
  • If you have a pond or pool you should set aquatic plants any time after the middle of the month.
  • Plant annual seeds of asters, cosmos, marigolds, zinnias in the garden.
  • As mowing becomes necessary, be certain that the blade is sharp to prevent tearing the grass tips. Set the blade on your lawnmower to cut the grass at 2 1/2 inches to avoid scalping.
