The fickle days of February can bring sunshine and in recent years, frost, ice, and snow. It’s getting ready time for spring — not only for dreaming and planning, but for planting and preparing for a new season.

1. Planting — Plant major trees and shrubs now. A late winter planting will allow the plants to become established prior to spring growth, and more importantly, prior to summer heat. The dormant plants are better adapted and assure better livability.
