UCCE Master Gardeners of El Dorado County
Garden Tips for February
- Above 2000 ft. : prune deciduous fruit trees, cane berries
- Below 2000 ft.: prune grapes, roses, crepe myrtle. Paint trunks of bareroot and young fruit trees to prevent borers and protect from sunburn. Use interior white latex paint with equal amounts of water and apply generously.
- Control earwigs and sow bugs with bait or traps.
Remove and discard old flowers from azaleas and camellias to reduce petal blight.
- Divide asters, lilies, perennial phlox, chrysanthemums.
- Work on removing dead and dying limbs and vegetation.
- Check dates of Master Gardener classes.
