  • Feed roses with an organic blend of cottonseed meal, alfalfa meal, and composted manure.
  • Plant cool-loving vegetables, such as cabbage, broccoli, spinach, radishes, Asian greens, lettuce, and parsley. It may be too late to plant peas, however, if temperatures usually turn hot in your area by April or May.
  • Harden-off tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants by moving them outside, beneath a plastic cover or inside a cold frame. Plant them in the garden after the last possible frost.
  • Prune away frost-damaged areas on citrus.
