“The spring wakes us, nurtures us and revitalizes us.
How often does your spring come? If you are a prisoner of the calendar, it
comes once a year. If you are creating authentic power, it comes frequently, or
very frequently.” — Gary Zukav
This year, at least by the calendar, the spring equinox comes March 20. Supposedly this is the day of 12 hours and night of 12 hours. Here in the Northern Hemisphere it is the beginning of the growing season and a return to green and other colors from the grays and brown of winter. It becomes tempting to get a jump on spring lawns and gardens but remember April can be a cruel month. Highs in the 70s and bright sunny skies one day, and the next morning there can be frost.
March is a time for flying kites, taking long walks in the woods before the ticks and snakes come out, and working to prepare the yard and garden for the new season. But April is the time for showers that supposedly bring May flowers. There are several special tasks that need to be done in April:
- plant summer and fall-blooming bulbs
- prune winter-flowering shrubs and vines after bloom
- spray for peach leaf curl, peach leaf blight, and canker
- plant permanent ground covers
- plant or repair lawns
- plant ornamental grasses
- plant bare-root and container roses
- plant or transplant warm-season annuals
- plant fruit trees
- spray dormant fruit trees
- prune frost-sensitive fruit trees
- feed houseplants that are growing or blooming
- uncover roses and apply dormant spray
- plant ornamental and evergreen shrubs, trees, and vines vines
- apply dormant spray to trees, shrubsand vines
- prune spring-flowering or tender shrubs, and vines during or just after bloom
- plant vegetable seedlings
