Water trees, shrubs, lawn, and perennials every four to six weeks. Wait
for a day when the temperature is 40 degrees and the ground isn't frozen. Water each

racks. Look for disease-resistant vegetable varieties. New veggie garden? Choose a site
that will get at least six hours of sun a day.
Cut back late summer blooming shrubs, such as blue mist spirea, Russian
sage, and butterfly bush, to three to six-inch stubs in late February or early March.
Start snapdragons indoors from seed in February. Press
these small seeds only lightly into the soil; they need light to germinate.
