•        It’s still cool enough to continue to plant flowers
such as calendula, pansies, snapdragons, ornamental
kale and petunias.

•        And you can still plant cool season crops such s
broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, peas and radishes in your
vegetable garden. At the end of the month you can begin
planting warm season vegetables such as tomatoes,
corn, beans and peppers.

•        If you have a crape myrtle or two that needs
reshaping, you can still take care of that through mid
month.

•        February is the preferred month to plant Florida
varieties of fruit trees, citrus, grapes and berries.

•        It’s time to give your trees and shrubs their first
dose of fertilizer for the year. Be sure to do this by the
middle of the month.

•        As for your turf, put down a pre-emergence weed
control at the end of the month. This will prevent weed
seeds from germinating in your lawn.

The Tabebuia tree or Yellow Trumpet Tree can add sparkle to your
landscape when most other plants are just starting to break their
winter dormancy...
fine grit sandpaper. It is a deciduous tree that usually looses most of its
leaves prior to flowering.
  The flower buds themselves are actually formed in the fall. They
appear as fuzzy brown spheres about the size of a pea, many times
between forked branches. Therefore it is very important to try and not
do any pruning on this tree after August. If so you are likely to sacrifice
the following years flowers. The open flowers are approximately 2”-3” in
length and width, are trumpet shaped, and are borne in clusters. They
look as though they have been fashioned from crepe paper. Truly
spectacular when in full bloom!
  The bark is gray and aquires a very rough texture as the tree ages.
And here are a couple of ‘Tab Tips’ for you. If you need to do any
pruning or shaping on this tree, do so immediately right after
flowering. This ensures you aren’t cutting any future flower buds from
the tree. Secondly, try not to give the tree any extra water the last 6-8
weeks before spring. This tends to make all the leaves drop from the
tree and promotes heavier flowering.
   
The Tabebuia works well as a specimen or an accent in the
residential landscape. Due to it’s size it also makes a great patio tree.
You might want to consider adding one to your landscape for a dash
of bright color when most plants are still dormant and the landscape
looks drab.
 From February and
into March the
Tabebuia Tree, a.k.a.
Yellow Trumpet Tree
can be quite a
showstopper! This is a
medium sized tree that
gets to be a mature
height of around 25’. It
does well in full sun to
partial shade and likes
a moist, fertile soil.
 The leaves are
palmate with 5-7
leaflets, are gray-
green in color and
