February Lawn & Garden Checklist

Even though spring may seem far off, there’s still plenty to do in February for lawn and gardens. Here’s a list of timely tasks:

  • Check bulbs for any mold or deterioration and remove the bad bulbs to prevent the issue from spreading.
  • Hungry for a fresh crop of vegetables? Start some lettuce now and you’ll have a fresh salad in no time!
  • Begin planting cole crops. This includes broccoli, kale, spinach, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and turnips. For help, check out our article on planting cole crops.
  • Scout your yard for any fallen branches and cleanly prune the remaining branch according to proper pruning practices for your plant.
  • Sharpen mower blades now. Here’s a video on why sharp blades are important.
  • Apply a pre-emergent weed control to your lawn.
  • Begin planning your garden for the spring. Search online for garden plans such as the salsa container garden plan to the right.
  • Fill empty garden spaces with garden accessories such as statues, lighting, or bird attractions.
  • Visit your local independent garden center for winter sales and great deals on out-of-season stock.
  • Fill and rotate bird feed in feeders to avoid mold.
  • Check down spouts to avoid clogging and subsequent freezing.
  • Feed houseplants an organic plant food.
  • Re-pot houseplants that have outgrown their pots.
  • Till an organic fertilizer with corn gluten into garden beds to add nutrients and reduce weeds in the spring.
