Horticulture columns and tips done on a timely basis

With the mention of trees and shrubs being very advanced this spring, pruning chores on ornamental and fruit trees should be moved up as well. So, that means as-soon-as possible this year, and two weeks ago would have been better. Wait on roses for now, as a cold snap will kill off end tissue and new growth. You may have to do the cover and uncover shuffle for a while with roses which have been protected, since those which have broken dormancy need to be uncovered.

Russel Allen Garden Day is scheduled for Saturday, March 11 at the Meyers-Evans Student Center on the Lincoln College Campus. Registration opens at 8:00 and programs begin at 9:00. Registration is limited, and may be accomplished by registering by calling the office at 732-8289 or online at and the registration cost is $10 pre-registered or $12 at the door (space permitting). The online registration page also has the schedule and speaker options listed.
