Despite this week’s winter-like temperatures, spring is here and residents have begun to beautify their yards. For expert advice on what to do and when, we’re continuing our occasional series on gardening with Jonathon Heidi Escambia County horticulturalist Beth Bolles, hosts of WUWF TV’s Southern Gardening.
Despite ads encouraging you to "get a jump on spring,” Bolles says it’s far better to hold off for a bit when it comes to lawn fertilization and nitrogen.
Residents in Northwest Florida and South Alabama need look no further than their yards to see evidence of this year’s harsh winter, including the extended hard freeze of Winter Storm Leon at the end of January. But, with spring around the corner, people across the region are beginning the process of getting their yards in shape and probably wondering what to do about those cold damaged, brown palms.
