Mexican feather grass
Clean up and replant containers—annuals, perennials, herbs, hibiscus, vegetables in larger containers
Top new containers with light layer of mulch to conserve water; use decomposed granite, pea gravel or other grit for potted succulents
Trees - if you keep them watered! Deeply to at least 3 inches. Don’t water if soil is moist to 3 inches.
Basil, catnip/catmint, comfrey, fennel, horseradish, feverfew, oregano, thyme, rosemary, Mexican mint marigold, peppermint, lemongrass, lemon balm, lemon verbena, bay laurel

What to Prune
Trees: DO NOT prune red oaks and live oaks unless damaged. Spray immediately with clear varnish.
No need to apply pruning paint to other trees
Dead head flowering plants
Prune spring bulbs only when foliage is brown
Bougainvilleas if not already pruned for overwintering
Lawns. Use an 8-2-4 or other similar ratio. Do not use Weed and Feed products!
Add compost to beds if not already. Mulch as you cut back dormant perennials. Fertilize with slow-release granular late in the month or as dormant perennials leaf out
Add compost around trees and fertilize. Be sure to dig out grass several feet from the trunk, ideally to the drip line of the tree canopy.
Citrus with high nitrogen fertilizer like Citrus-tone. Fertilize every few weeks through growing season.
Plant new lawn. Keep watered until established
Mow weeds before they set seed
Fertilize with an 8-2-4 or other similar ratio. Do not use Weed and Feed products!
Mow to keep weeds from going to seed. Leave clippings on the lawn unless you have weed seeds.
Add compost to vegetable gardens along with organic fertilizer in prep for more summer crops
When planting, dig hole twice as wide as root ball but no deeper than where it sits in the pot.
Backfill and water until it sinks in.
Continue filling in.
Water again until it sinks in and pack the soil down.
Plant flowers in your vegetable garden to encourage bee pollinators.
Mostly native perennials, shrubs, and grasses that practically take care of themselves AND attract the right attention! Wildscaping plants for bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds and deer proof plants to keep curious wildlife away.
