Garden Tips – February

Houseplants with large leaves and smooth foliage such as philodendrons, dracaena and rubber plants benefit from having their leaves washed to remove dust and grime.

When using salt to melt ice on walks and driveways, spread it carefully to avoid damage to nearby shrubs and plants. Consider using sand instead.

Consider purchasing a notebook to keep records of all your gardening information. Include information such as seeds planted, favorite vegetable varieties, warranties on shrubs and trees from Daniel’s, and yardage of mulch used to make it easy to order next year.

Check Daniel’s for new garden seeds. Stopping in to our sunny greenhouse on a cold winter day will give you an instant feeling of spring.
