February Gardening Tips

As January closes and February 2019 begins you may be able to start planting. Of course, there is a caveat. Where do you happen to live? In some regions of the country, as we prepare to flip our calendars from January to February a snowstorm is brewing and some regions are preparing for more arctic cold. However, take heart, spring is just around the corner.

It won’t be frigid later on in February and that means you can head for the garden.

Here are some suggestions of what you can plant in particular regions of the country.

Southern And Southwestern States

According to Better Homes And Gardens, residents of southern states can begin to plant such things as:

• Roses

• Vegetables

• Trees

• Perennials

In the southwest you can start to plant:

  • Peas
  • Tomatoes
  • Beans
  • Corn
  • Cucumber
  • Squash

Gardening gurus also recommend that February is a great time to add mulch to your flowerbeds. They suggest that a 2-inch to 3-inch lay of mulch should suffice.

They also recommend preparing your garden and lawn for spring.

Midwest And Northwest States

You can begin to plant:

  • Cabbages
  • Leeks
  • Sprouts
  • Broccoli

  • In this case, the garden gurus suggest that you plant these cold-weather vegetables in a raised garden bed. A raised bed warms quickly.

Pacific Northwest

You can start to plant:

  • Trees
  • Shrubs
  • Roses
  • Berries

Make certain that you do the planting in soil that has reached above freezing temperatures.

You can also start growing Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and onions in raised garden beds.
