Gardening season has arrived, so stock up on the goods and gadgets you’ll need and get ready to dig in!

For April, it’s time to prep your yard for planting:

  • Prune overgrown shrubs, cutting out no more than one-third of the oldest canes from the base of the plant.
  • Plant cool-season vegetables including peas, broccoli, onions and spinach.
  • Plant newly purchased trees, shrubs and perennials.
  • Test irrigation systems for problems before aerating and fertilizing lawns.
  • Spot-treat lens for broad-leaf weeds like dandelions.
