Tips of the Week
Divide spring-flowering perennials like coneflower, Indian blanket, and yarrow.

Continue planting wildflower seeds.
Get spring-flowering bulbs to plant in a few weeks in the garden or to force indoors.
Get ready to move your outdoor plants in. Drench them with diluted orange oil or soap to kill any pests that want to come in, too.
Continue planting your food garden.
Plant trees, shrubs, perennials and herbs. Now's the best time to plant everything, except tropicals.
Mulch marginally cold-hardy plants.
