Spring Prep ….

Hand Tools for Gardening

Hand Tools for Gardening

Now’s the time to pick up a set of hand tools if you need them. Gardeners will be out in mass as soon as the temperatures become milder and the notion of an approaching Spring becomes more reality than dream. It’s also time to check if cutting and shearing tools need sharpening.

Here’s a few tasks on my Valentine’s Day “to do” list (USDA zones 8-10):

  • prune roses (purchase, or get cutting tools sharpened, if needed)
  • plant potatoes
  • find and purchase mulch
  • find desired bulbs for Spring and Summer (they sell quickly!)
  • have soil tested
  • get garden plans together (what will grow, where)
