Prune your shrubs and trees after the last flowers fade but before the new buds set. 

Fertilize lawns, palms, and ornamental shrubs if you haven’t done so already. Add fresh mulch to minimize weeds and to hold moisture during the upcoming dry spells.

Be sure to monitor your plants for insects as they become more prevalent with warmer weather. Be on the lookout for aphids on new growth. Identifying damaging pests and spot treating early can help to prevent widespread damage. |
