  • Dig up and separate clustered spring-flowering bulbs and tubers.
  • Feed roses after each growth, water regularly and remove dead heads of flowers
  • Feed growing annuals every month, to keep them blooming
  • Feed potted plants twice a month with half – strength liquid fertilizer like 20-20-20 or less often with a controlled-release pelleted fertilizer
  • Check to make sure that the soil is moist in plants that are grown in pots every day. If it is hot some plants may need to be watered twice a day

  • Plant trees a minimum of 6 feet from sidewalks or driveways to prevent the concrete from cracking due to growing roots
  • Be sure to keep up with watering plants, trees, and grass in the warmer months. Pay attention to the watering needs of plants
  • Apply mulch to plats that are sensitive to the heat. The mulch will help to keep the roots of the plants cool.
  • Help protect your recently transported trees by staking them. This will help to protect them from high winds and storms.

  • Use room temperature water to be sure that you don’t make indoor tropical plants to cold. The cold tap water can harm or kill the sensitive roots on these plants.
  • Keep indoor plants away from air conditioner vents. This will also cause your plants’ roots to get cold and harm or kill them.

  • Check outdoor sprinkler systems to make sure that they are all in working order.
  • Indoor plants should be kept out of direct sunlight to protect the leaves of the plants. Use sheer curtains to make sure they are getting enough light, but not too much.
