Early spring is a safe time to transplant almost all trees, shrubs, evergreens, perennials, grasses, roses and more. Do so before they start to grow new leaves if possible. Avoid digging or dividing plants that bloom early unless you are willing to sacrifice the flowers this spring. All transplants should be watered regularly if Mother Nature does not do so. It is also a great time to clean up the lawn and gardens. Fill in bare spots in the lawn with new grass seed before the weeds do. Weed and mulch the gardens before the perennials, bulbs and more weeds emerge all the way and get in the way. It is safe to plant all plants that are available at Kennedy’s now. Our general rule is that if it is outside, it can be planted. If it is the greenhouse, you may need to wait. Pansies and other cold season annuals and veggies may need to be brought inside or protected with a blanket, but only on cold nights when the temps dip into the low 30′s. Besides that, let planting season begin!
Rain is in the forecast, we hope, but it has been a dry spring as of this writing. Even in spring, plants can dry out and suffer drought stress. Make sure any plants that have been planted or transplanted with in the last 12 months get a good soaking once per week. Anything newly planted this spring may require more water, up to three times per week depending how the weather is. New grass seed needs to be lightly sprinkled up to several times per day until it germinates. For more information on watering, click over to our info sheet page to find Chris’ guide to watering.
