  • It's not too late to plant spring flowering bulbs, including tulips, daffodils, freesias, crocus and many more.
  • It's not too late to plant garlic, shallot and onions starts or sets (bulbs). 
  • Plant camellias now for winter color in afternoon shade.
  • For more winter color, plant primroses, pansies, Iceland poppies, ornamental cabbage or kale.
  • To prevent Peach Leaf Curl, spray with Monterey Liqui-Cop or Bonide Copper Fungicide.
  • Prune most fruit trees, roses and deciduous trees from December through January.
  • Do not prune spring flowering shrubs and trees such as lilac, quince or flowering cherry until the bloom is finished.
  • To prevent spring weeds such as Oxalis and annual blue grass in the landscape or lawn, apply the pre-emergent Bonide Crabgrass & Weed Preventer.
  • For Christmas color, decorate with poinsettias and cyclamen.
  • Don’t know what to buy for someone on your list? Orchard Nursery gift cards make great gifts!
