April Gardening Tips - Colorado

april flowers

 Keep your yard and garden in top shape with these timely and seasonal gardening tips.


1) Time to visit the local nursery to select spring plants and see what's in flower.

2) Plant hardy trees and shrubs by mid-month, and transplant dormant trees and shrubs with exposed roots.

3) Uncover plants and shrubs wrapped for winter protection, weather permitting.

4) Mulch flower beds and landscape.

5) Begin mid month to prune bushes and forsythias.  Remove dead or damaged rose canes.

6) Plant cool weather annuals like petunias, zinnias, and pansies.

7) De-thatch and aerate lawn.  Fertilize twice in spring, at least 30 days apart.  Water abundantly.

8) Spray ornamental flowering trees (apple, crab apple) immediately after "bud-break" to minimize infection and disease.
