Prune rose bushes by 30-50% around Valentine’s Day. Make each cut just above a bud.
Prune shrubs: first remove any dead or damaged branches, then thin out by removing 1/3 of the oldest stems at ground level, and shape the rest of the plant following its natural form.
Plant cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and potatoes.
Feed the birds. Don’t forget fresh water!
Begin clean-up in the garden and landscape. Remove weeds and debris, prune out dead foliage and cut back perennials.
