     March is usually a favorite month for gardeners – the cold weather is usually behind us and the hot weather is still several months off. The first day of spring officially happens on March 19th this year.  Spring is a beautiful time of the year with beautiful weather for all kinds of pleasant activities, gardening being a favorite for many.

 

     It’s time to get your vegetable gardens ready for planting. A good rule of thumb to use for when to plant vegetables, is when nighttime low temperatures are consistently 50 degrees or higher. We frequently have warm weather in February but the nights are still too cold for putting out vegetables. Select a spot with lots of sunlight for your vegetable garden, and some intermittent shade as the sun moves across the area is alright.  The soil will probably need to be spaded or roto-tilled to loosen it.  If the soil is heavy clay it will take several rounds of tilling and adding planting mix or compost to help break up the clay.  Adding organic soil conditioners and fertilizers will build your soil rather than chemical products that tend to deplete the soil of needed nutrients.  The decomposition of organic matter such as crushed leaves and grass clippings can be interspersed into heavy clay soil to help lighten it as well as create spaces to help with drainage which is a problem with very dense clay.  Many of our customers in the foothills are very familiar with the clay soil, and maintain a compost pile - an effective way to always have soil additive ready when you need it.  A compost pile is not especially attractive and might be offensive to some neighbors in town, but there are containers available that work well and will breakdown trimmings into compost. It is not a fast process, but it is still a good way to dispose of trimmings and weeds, and make good use of them.    

 

     Now is the time to try to keep weeds and brush under control – they both grow rapidly and can be an invasive problem.  Control can be accomplished in several different ways such as pulling them by hand, tilling them, mowing and weed eating, or using herbicides. Pre-emergent is another effective way of weed control. It is probably too late now for the weeds that are already coming up but can stop any that have not yet sprouted.  With pre-emergent, one must be careful not to apply it where you planted flower seeds for spring color – it is not fussy about what it works its magic on! Congratulations to anyone who had the foresight to use it early enough to be effective.  A combination of all those things seem to work for most people, depending on the areas to be done, the kind of weeds, etc. All methods require that some caution be used in order not to harm something else in the process.

 

  With the weather warming, and plants eager to grow, it is also time to fertilize just about everything to give them all a good start. An all purpose fertilizer is fine for most plants, but try to use the proper fertilizer on those things that need it, such as citrus food and acid based fertilizer.  I have a few words of caution, though.  Should you have any plant that has buds that should open several weeks later than your date of fertilizing, skip those plants until they have finished blooming. Fertilizing while the buds are not mature might cause the plant to start putting on vigorous new growth that could push the unopened buds off.  Just wait until it has finished blooming, and fertilize it then. It is natural for spring blooming plants to put out new growth following their bloom period.  This caution refers to those plants that bloom only once a year in the spring.  Sometimes, for instance, some rhododendrons are later blooming. Enjoy all of their beautiful blooms, and fertilize them after they have finished.  Another cautionary statement on rhodies – be sure to break off the flower trusses left following the petals falling, to reduce seed formation which will reduce next year’s bloom. 

 

      We are not the only ones happy to see spring. Slugs, snails, earwigs, aphids all welcome the warmer weather.  Aphids multiply exponentially and ants farm them by moving them from one place to another because they like the sticky honeydew that they leave behind.  Aphids can be controlled by hosing them off frequently, and there are insecticides that will control them for longer time.  Controlling the ants helps to control the aphids.

 

      This an excellent time to plant most anything -  ground covers, lawns, annuals, etc.  Perennials can also be dug and divided and possibly shared with other gardener friends.  They can become well established more easily in the cooler spring temperatures and thus, withstand the heat of the summer.  Enjoy the beauty of the spring season.

 With February upon us, we still have one more month of bare root season to go. If you are wanting to plant bare root fruit trees there is still time and selections are still good. Bare Root Season is January and February.

 

      Now for the other things that we need to do in February.  One of the most necessary things to be done is the third and final dormant spraying in mid-February with a copper based fungicide.  It is important to keep ahead of the fungal pests that might occur on fruits and nuts, as well as some vegetables and ornamentals. Rose are very susceptible to black spot, powdery mildew, and rust. Copper spray is well known for its use for curly leaf on peaches and nectarines.  Once a fungal disease is started it is difficult to control because the spores produced are easily blown to neighboring plants that might become infected.  Because of its variable uses, it is a good product to have on your shelf for gardening needs. You should mix it with horticultural oil or Neem Oil, to help the spray spread evenly and cling to the foliage.  Neem Oil has many other good uses.  It is an excellent insecticide as well as controlling some fungi, to a lesser extent than the copper spray. 

 

     February usually brings hints of spring with it.  Buds for the spring blooms begin to form.  I am always fascinated by looking at those bare stems on the deciduous trees and shrubs and seeing the buds form for spring blooms.  All of the subtle changes are telling us that things are awakening in the plant world, and that is the time to begin fertilizing most things. Wait to fertilize until the plants have their full set of leaves.  The plants won’t utilize fertilizer when they are bare of leaves.  If they leaf out soon following the application of fertilizer, they will utilize any fertilizer that hasn’t been washed away by rain or irrigation, but the usefulness of some has been lost.  So- not too soon, but get on it when the signs of life show and give them a boost into spring. Use an appropriate fertilizer for the plants being fertilizes.  There is a basic all purpose fertilizer that can be used on most things. It is often referred to as a “balanced” fertilizer since it has almost equal amounts of the three basic elements that are in moist formulas.  Those three elements are N,P and K, or Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium.  They will frequently be seen on the front of fertilizer packages. Acid fertilizer is used on azaleas, camellias, rhododendron and gardenias, plus other things that do well in similar conditions.  Other elements will have been added to the basic three to create the desired acidity.  Citrus trees have a special fertilizer with nutrients needed by that species.  There is an abundance of formulas available to meet the needs of differing plants, there is also an abundance of plants that do well on the basic fertilizers.                                                  

                                                                

        All of the seasons have a beauty of their own. Seeing the seasons change has always been one of those things I enjoy. There are also many folks who would love to see it forever balmy and not have to put up with the cold or the hot weather.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

       Grasses are growing and weeds will be growing right along with them.  Fertilize grasses with Weed and Feed to get rid of the weeds before they become a difficult pest in the yard.  Weeds can be controlled quite well in flower beds, now before they have emerged, by covering the areas with 2” of mulch.  That will also help with watering chores later by reducing the frequency of watering since evaporation will be slowed.

 

      As the weather gets warmer, be on the lookout for slugs and snails.  Irregular holes in leaves are a clue that they are out and about.  They also leave a slightly shiny trail behind.  Use snail bait to destroy them.  I have had very good luck with Sluggo – it is granular and is sprinkled in the infested areas.  It is safe around pets and wildlife.  I never saw the snails, just their empty shells.  Snails also like beer and will be attracted to a bowl of beer cradled in a depression in the ground and will drown when they fall into it.  Of course, it has to be emptied and wastes a bit of beer.  Aphids are also one of the early pests that you will encounter.  They produce a sweet and sticky substance that is left on the leaves.  Ants are attracted to that and will farm the aphids and that compounds the problem, so look for ants at the base of a plant infested with aphids and bait for or spray them. Spring is on the way – enjoy it.

     We wish everyone a “Happy New Year” as we enter 2020.   We have had a wet  December so far. As we get into winter, be prepared to protect frost sensitive plants if a freeze is coming. Check on plants to be sure that they are not excessively dry.  That is especially important for containerized plants since dry roots will freeze more easily than wet ones will. Cover frost sensitive plants with frost cloth or sheets. Avoid using plastic. It does not insulate. Fabric does.

 

     Bare root season is the big thing many people look forward to in January.  Bare root fruit trees and roses are now available. We usually have some folks who are new to gardening and the term ”bare root” may  not be familiar to them.  It is simply what it says.  The trees have been taken out of the ground and the roots are exposed, thus, “bare root” .  They are less expensive since the pot, soil, and time and effort to plant them into a container has been avoided.  It also requires that it must be planted right away, or otherwise stored in a way to protect the roots from drying out or freezing.  We have availability lists at the nursery to help one to make decisions.  Bare root season for fruit trees is usually considered very late December or early January to the end of February. By then the trees are beginning get too many new fragile roots and new leaves to handle them “bare root” without possible damage.  There are advantages to planting your own fruit trees.  You make the decisions of what fertilizers etc. are used and avoiding many of the unknows of commercial grower’s methods. Allowing the fruit ripen on the tree allows much better flavor to develop as the fruit ripens than that picked early and ripened in cold storage.  Often kids and adults are encouraged to eat more fruit just because they like picking it themselves and it is close by.

 

      There are many questions about the fruit trees, one being, do they all need pollinizers?  Some are self fruitful and don’t need a different pollinizer and others do.  Many of the peaches and nectarines are self fruitful, but not all of them.  Most of the cherries need a pollinizer, but again, not all of them, and so it is with plums, and pears.  Most fruit trees have a tag giving some of that information, but be sure to check when you are picking out varieties to make sure you have the proper variety needed to pollinate if necessary.

 

     One thing that won’t be found during bare root season are citrus and avocado trees.  They are evergreen trees.  They are semi tropical trees and need protection when the weather is very cold.  They will be available in the spring.

     Chill hours may be noted on the tag.  That refers to the cumulative number of hours required under 45 degrees during the entire winter season to provide normal fruit production and is generally not a concern in our area. We historically average 700 to 800 chill hours in our area. The number of hours varies from year to year. Some years are lower so if you choose trees with lower chill hours it will ensure good fruit production every year. Several of the trees in the nursery orchard are high chill and still produce even when we have warmer winters.

 

     Many camellia plants have finished blooming for the year and the flowers have fallen causing a pile of debris at the base of the plant.  That debris should be bagged and sent to the landfill rather than added to a compost pile you may have.  It can carry a fungal disease that develops in the debris that then can scatter the spores and spread a problem            that is easily avoided by the proper disposal of the debris.

 

     Bare root roses are now available and have been pruned by the growers.  If you have roses that are growing in your yard already, we suggest delaying the pruning until the danger of a heavy freeze is past. In our area roses usually don’t go completely dormant.  What happens when you prune a rose?  It starts putting out new growth at that point.  That new growth is too tender to survive a hard freeze and dies back.   We have lots of micro climates in the foothills, so consider the temperature range in your area and delay the pruning until freezing danger is past and do the pruning in early spring if it seems more appropriate.  If by chance you do prune them and are then hit by freeze that damages new growth, no great harm has been done – the rose just has to expend more energy that might otherwise have been saved for its beautiful first bloom and has to start over again.

 

    Some maintenance chores to be done in January – weather permitting –

                Annual pruning of dormant deciduous plants – allow spring blooming plants to bloom, then prune

                Prune dormant vines, grapes and cane berries

                Prune deciduous fruit trees

                Rake up heavy litter of leaves and apply pre-emergent if weeds were a problem last year

 

Shop early for the best selections in bare root fruit trees.
