Do Away with Winter Damage

Check on the Houseplants
Keeping it green in your house too? It may be time to repot your houseplants as well. Check for signs of insect infestation or root issues. Now, repot them and change up your plant care system for spring with an increase of water!
Roses are Blooming
March is the time of year that roses really start to come to life. As the buds develop, make sure you are keeping track of a clean up schedule. Surrounding fallen leaves or debris can cause the roses to die. Throw in some fresh mulch to give those blooms the nutrients they need.
Has winter come and gone? Here in Texas, it won’t be long before spring is here to stay, so, it’s safe to plant cannas, dahlias, and gladiolas. If it’s quite chilly still where you are located, it’s better to wait, as a freeze can kill off these blooms.
