  • Check your gladiola, dahlia and canna bulbs that you have stored to make sure the
    media around them is still moist. 
  • If you are eager for some outdoor gardening activity this month consider pruning the
    trees on your property. It's a great time to prune most trees. (Maples are an exception
    and should be done in late summer or early winter.) The foliage is gone and the structure
    of the branches is clearly visible. The tree is dormant, eliminating the bleeding of sap.
  • Use the correct and properly-sharpened tool when pruning: hand pruners for small
    branches, loppers for branches to 2" in diameter and pruning saws for larger branches. Remove dead, dying, diseased, damaged and deformed branches. Look for branches
    that are rubbing together and remove one of the branches. Remove any branches
    that are growing inward toward the center of the tree or those that are growing
    downward. This is also a great time to winter water trees and shrubs. This light
    maintenance will improve the look and health of your trees.
  • CSU has some great instructional information:

  • If you potted bulbs for forcing last year, check their progress. The soil should be fairly moist. If the tips have sprouted and have a few inches of growth, it's time to bring the pot into a cool bright room. Gradually expose them to increasing warmth and indirect sunlight. Turn the pot around 1/4 turn daily to grow straight stems. Water moderately. When the buds and foliage have fully developed, move the pot to full sun and enjoy. 

What's in a Name?
           Mother-in-Law Tongue
The sharp leaves must have reminded someone of a mother-in-law with a sharp tongue 
and the name stuck. Despite the name these beautiful plants are enjoying a  
wave of popularity because of their easy care qualities and distinctive form.
