- Apply 1/2" of organic compost over any turf areas that performed poorly over the past year.
- Fertilize houseplants with organic compost or coffee grounds.
- Put all spent plants and annuals in your compost pile...saves room at the landfill and by springtime, you'll have a ready-made fertilizer for free!
- It's time to plant potatoes and onions! If you haven't already, turn the soil, add organic compost and otherwise prepare your vegetable garden. From mid-January to mid-February you can also go ahead and get your potato slips and onions in the ground.
- Plant or transplant permanent trees and plants. Growth is at its slowest now, so plants will have time to establish a vigorous root system before the summer heat hits.
- Plant asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, celery, and other cold tolerant vegetables for spring harvest.
- Finish any major pruning now. Make sure all fruit trees are pruned before bud break.
- Prepare vegetable and flower beds for spring. Work organic matter into the soil to increase microbial activity.
- Begin looking for the perfect place in your yard for your Purple Martin house. Scouts will be here soon to look for housing!
