Are your spring bulbs breaking ground? Should you do something about it? When we get unseasonably warm temperatures in mid to late winter, the early spring bulbs and perennials will begin to react to the warm ground. If the temperatures drop before the plant buds, you are in the clear! These plants should stand the temperature change. However, if you see the plant has flowering buds you may want to take extra precaution. Budding plants are more vulnerable to drastic temperature changes. Simply cover these plants with leaves or mulch to help protect them from the weather.

Getting the bug to do some yard work in this warm weather? When weather clears, it is great to get a jump start on spring cleanup. Just be aware not to trim plants or bushes during these bursts of warm weather. If you trim a plant and the weather drops drastically, within the same week, you are putting your plant at risk of disease or temperature shock. Pruning should only happen when the plants are in dormant stage or in warmer seasons when weather is guaranteed to stay above freezing. Looking for a company to do spring cleanup?
