|It's time to give your lawn some love. Timing is important with lawn care and the success of your lawn, The next chance for fertilizing lawns is not until September.|

|FROM WILMA: St. Patrick’s Day is associated with the color green which has positive symbols of nature, spring, and rebirth. It is a tradition in Ireland to plant potatoes and peas on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th). Seed potatoes, onion sets, and asparagus crowns are ready for planting. Peas and other spring vegetable plants from our Farm greenhouses arrive often. Seeds and other garden supplies are here, too.|
Spring is a bit late this year with not a lot of green or other colors showing yet. When forsythia and other early spring-flowering plants begin to bloom I make a note of it in a gardening journal. In looking back at previous entries, I find this can range from mid-February to late March. One tree that is flowering now is native red maple (Acer rubrum). A neighbor beekeeper expressed how important this early bloom is as it provides both pollen and nectar.
With the warmer weather of the previous week and the prediction of rain next week, spring should be “busting out all over”. Stop by the Garden Center for a promise of green and lots of other color.

|Protect Apples From Fire Blight|
|To prevent fire blight, make the first spray at the start of the apple blossoming period. Apply in calm, clear weather with no wind/rain predicted. Continue spray applications every 3 to 4 days during bloom time, and apply additional sprays every 5 to 7 days after blossom period when weather conditions favor spread of fire blight. Do not apply once fruit is visible. As always, read and follow product directions before application.|
