February's gardening checklist

Even though it’s February and still winter, many peach trees started setting out flowers, and the promise of spring can be felt.

Even though the 2021 spring season doesn’t officially start until 4:37 a.m. March 20, the new gardening year will be in full swing in February with many activities and options for growing and learning.

Over the next few weeks, landscape trees and shrubs will be blanketed with new leaves in varying shades of green and an array of colorful flowers to lift our spirits.
