When the weather allows, February is a perfect time to cultivate your vegetable and flower gardens for the new season. Break up the soil, and add last year’s compost to improve the conditions of your beds, so they will be ready to go when the time comes for planting
If you have cool season plants in a green house, you can begin their growth now, or get a head start with plants which face a warm southern window inside. This will help foster a head start for these plants before planting season, ensuring an even greater harvest, or more beautiful flowers too!
Think about any additions to your garden such as fruit & nut trees – but be sure that they aren’t planted in a way that they will block the sunlight in the other areas of your garden though.
