Fertilize the lawn with slow release fertilizer if needed, once grass has greened up. Spring plantings should be hand watered daily for 2 weeks, to hasten establishment. Prune and fertilize azaleas, camellias and spireas, once blooming has finished. Make sure you keep newly planted shrubs well watered to hasten establishment. Vegetables should be planted by mid-March (esp tomatoes) to assure good harvest in time. Take advantage of discarded oak leaves by incorporating into beds or use as a mulch. As plants begin to grow, adjust irrigation timer on 12th for DST watering schedule.
