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.
ALL THE FUNDRAISING IN HALF THE TIME! In many ways, WUWF is fueled by trust. After all, that is one of the reasons you tune in every day. Trust is what makes this station successful - and this fall WUWF is putting all of its trust in you as we make a radical change. We are cutting our fall on-air fundraising by half.

The coldest temperatures of the winter season so far are expected for central and south Florida tonight, where most inland and rural areas as far south as Lake Okeechobee could see frost or subfreezing temperatures. While the air mass won’t be as cold as the one last week for North Florida, conditions are ideal for a widespread frost and inland freeze north of I-4 as well. Residents and farmers should take action now to prevent damage to tender vegetation and pets sensitive to the cold.
