April Gardening Tips

  • Fertilize trees and shrubs but use a low nitrogen fertilizer
  • Aerate lawns so that any water you can apply gets to the root zone
  • Crabgrass pre-emergent application
  • Cut back frost damage on plants (after danger of frost has passed)
  • Plant summer blooming bulbs (Begonias, Lilies, Dahlias, Gladiolas) in pots only
  • Plant summer annuals and vegetables
  • Eliminate standing water where Mosquitoes breed
  • Apply deer repellant in deer prone areas
  • Hand weed in and around plants - this reduces competition for water
