Louisiana gardening by the month: February!

Here’s what to plant in February‼️

February: Early this month, plant cool-season vegetables, such as beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, Swiss chard, collards, lettuce, mustard, potatoes, radishes, spinach, snow peas and turnips. Plant seeds of tomatoes, peppers and eggplants in greenhouses or under lights indoors.
Many hardy fruit trees, such as peach, pear, plum and apple, should be pruned in February. There often is a specific way to prune your tree, depending on the type you’re growing, so do some research before pruning.
Plant hardy trees, shrubs and ground covers in the landscape now. This will give them time to make some root growth before the heat of summer.
Fertilize young shade trees and fruit trees.
Clip ground covers back before new growth appears to remove unattractive foliage, rejuvenate the plants and control growth.
