February in the Garden
On one hand it felt like there was 97 days in January and on the other hand I can’t believe it’s already February. I am enjoying high tunnel work which is keeping me warm and out of the wind. I am busy planting seeds getting ready for an early srping. The high tunnel has been such a game changer and plants are tucked in and growing well.
I encourage you to prep a small space even just part of your front flower bed to tuck some seeds or plants into this time of year.
Here is some things to plant in February:
Asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, English peas, onions, potatoes, Swiss chard and other cold-tolerant vegetables and strawberries for harvest next spring.
Alyssum, calendulas, cannas, daylilies, English daisies, gladiolas, Iceland poppies, larkspur, pansies, petunias, pinks, primroses, snapdragons and other cool season annuals.
Fruit trees, grapes, pecans and berries.
Transplant existing plants before the new spring growth begins. I have a lantana I need to move!
Divide and transplant perennials such as daisies, coneflowers, hardy hibiscus, asters, mums and salvias.
This weekend is supposed to be so nice with a little spring like shower even. Get outside with your kiddos!
