In our area of Florida, February is a great time to start thinking about installing new plants prior to their spring growth period. Celebrate Valentine’s Day by creating a display that will last through the seasons with flowers and new plantings. Allow your new plants to settle into their new location in late winter to ensure healthier plants come springtime. Create a plant design that incorporates different levels and complementary colors that will be successful in the selected location. If you have mature plants, you will want to consider pruning and trimming so that your existing landscape will be ready for their new spring vegetation. If you are contemplating installing turf grass, February is a great time to select the type of grass you want and prepare for installation prior to spring. Adding plant specific fertilizers will increase your plants’ blooms and growth by providing important nutrients for them to grow.
