February Garden To Do List

February 1, 2021

February is a great time to start fertilizing, pruning and getting seeds ready. Weather permitting, this can be a great month to get your soil in order for your spring and summer plants.


General garden care

  • Pull any weeds that have been snow covered such as bittercress.
  • Continue to feed the birds.



  • During a thaw, cut down ornamental grasses.
  • Remove any broken tree or shrub branches.
  • Prune trees and shrubs while still dormant.
  • Spray Wilt-Stop on all broadleaf evergreens for protection from drying winter winds and sun when temperatures are above 42 degrees.
  • Plant pansies, English daisies and primrose as soon as the earth is workable.



  • Start pepper and eggplant seeds indoors at the end of the month.
  • Buy seeds and seed starting supplies.
