We are in-between seasons now – a lot of snow is still hanging around, the ground is frozen and pond-size puddles abound.
However, Spring is in the air. We are itching to get outside and do something – anything – that will rid us of the last of the winter cobwebs and allow us to get up to our elbows in Nature.
So what’s a gardener to do in April in Zone 3b?
- Empty and clean nest boxes – repair as needed.
- Build bee houses
- Pruning, but not your elms!
- If you are still unfortunate enough to have lawn, lightly rake through any snowmold that may appear.
- If you haven’t begun yet – seeding indoors for vegetables and more.
