Trees / Shrubs – Heavy snow and ice may crack limbs of trees and shrubs. Prune off cracked limbs to avoid further ripping of bark. Allow ice to melt naturally and finish corrective pruning when temps warm up.
Flowers – Late this month jump start your tender perennials by potting them up and placing in a 50-60 degree sunlit room. Plants such as calla lily, cannas and elephant ears will benefit from getting a head start on the growing season. These maybe planted outdoors after threats of freezing have past.
Pesky Bugs – Stored food pests are common in the house in winter. Indian Meal Moths may be controlled by: destroying infested products, cleaning crevices of pantry with vacuum and damp cloth and packaging all fresh grain products in tightly sealed containers or the freezer.
