Garden Do’s and Don’ts


Garden Do’s:

  • Do prune back plants now 1/3 to 1/2 before the flush of new spring growth.
  • Do prune back roses, removing all twiggy growth and dead canes.
  • Do apply Weed & Grass Stopper with Dimension or Amaze granules (pre-emergents) to prevent more weeds from sprouting.
  • Do spray lawns for broadleaf weeds now with Weed-B-Gon Hose End that is safe for Floratam St. Augustine.

Garden Don’ts: 

  • Don’t prune back Indian Hawthorn, Climbing Roses, Carolina Jessamine or Azaleas until after the Spring bloom.
  • Don’t use Weed and Feed in your lawn if you have trees and shrubs since they are a broadleaf also.
