The PRUNING of non-spring flowering trees may be done now- such as oak trees. Most cold hardy trees and shrubs may be trimmed at any time but trees do better when they are trimmed while they are dormant. Flowering trees and deciduous fruit should not be pruned until the threat of the worst freezing has passed (mid to end of February). Prune after cold has passed but before spring flowers.

• Spray horticultural oil on Camellias, Junipers and Cypress for prevention of scale and spider mites

• Spread Pre-emergent weed killer to beds for suppression of weed growth.
