  • Under fluorescent lights, start seeds of onions and leeks at the beginning of the month.
  • Near the end of the month, start seeds of broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts indoors under lights.
  • Start slow-growing flowers, such as garden verbena (Verbena hybrida), stocks (Matthiola incana), wallflowers (Cheirianthus cheiri), and ageratum indoors.
  • If winter has been mild, transplant trees, shrubs, and roses.
  • For the earliest tomatoes, start seeds of ‘Early Girl' under lights now. In April, set out the transplants and protect them with Wallo'Waters.
  • Sharpen pruning shears and use them to prune fruit trees, brambles, grapevines, and late summer–blooming shrubs.
  • Rinse houseplants by setting them beneath your shower.
