Monthly Landscape Guide - January

Treat weeds with herbicide as soon as they appear. Don't let them flower and disperse their seed. Protect frost-tender plants from freezing temperatures with frost cloth, bedsheets or newspaper. Fertilize citrus in January or February with one-third of its total annual nitrogen requirements.

Prune established roses. Prune non-native deciduous shade and fruit trees, and grapes. Examine plants for aphids. Spray them off regulary with a blast of water from the hose.
