We’ve had a schizophrenic month of weather in Tucson…it’s warm, viagra it’s cold, it’s warm. That can be really hard on plants. Look in your yard and you’ll probably see that most of your plants are brown and ugly right now. Don’t worry, desert plants are wonderfully resilient and know how to take care of themselves. Take a look under the brown section of a plant and more than likely you’ll see green leaves and branches. Lantana is a good plant to see this with.
Once the chance of freezing is past (early March), you can cut back your plants to the green section or lower and your plants will grow back. Just make sure you wait until its warm enough for the tender green leaves to survive. Birds-of-Paradise can be cut back just about all the way down to the ground and they come back looking great.
And, if you want to add some plants to your yard to freshen up the look of it, head to the nurseries in March to see all the spring plants available. Don’t be afraid to ask a nursery worker for help. They’re extremely knowledgeable and can help you find just the right plant.
All or most of your plants are still alive and should look great this spring. Always use a professional to properly cut back your plants. Give us a call at (520) 370-5697 if we can help you with a spring cleanup or certified weed control. And, get ready to start enjoying your yard again!
