Plant this One of the earliest-flowering bushes for a small lawn is the Japanese apricot, Prunus mume ‘Beni-Chidori.’ Its magenta red, almond-scented plants begin emerging now, but it wishes a sheltered spot in full sun to prevent frost damage to the blossom. This shrubby tree is ideal for a container.
Prune this You know it’s time to prune shrub roses, but the array of advice may be bewildering. Simplify it this way: first, snip away stems which are broken or spindly. Then lessen the rest of the growth by using approximately a 3rd, removing the oldest branches at the base. Make your cuts just above an outward-facing bud.
