Archive for April, 2011

Yay for Spring!  Now that the weather has turned warm, it’s time to visit your local plant center where you can find tons of annuals and perenials, shrubs, and trees to put in your yard.

Make sure you keep those carefully selected plants nice and healthy, or your money will just go to waste.  To protect against insects, use Bayer Advanced Tree & Shrub Protect & Feed.  It will provide 12 months of protection with just one application.  Fertilize your plants with Miracle-Gro all Purpose Fertilizer-10 lb.

You should plant any cool weather vegetables you have now, such as broccoli, cabbage, and lettuce.

April also has two special occasions for you to plant trees in your community- Earth Day and Arbor Day.  Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release clean, healthy oxygen back into the air, so go ahead and take the time to help out your environment.
