What to plant in February
(as my Pappy used to call them)
Flowers: transplant or direct seed snapdragons, candytufts, lilies, California Indian pinks, lily-of-the-valleys, larkspurs, Shasta and painted daisies, stock and coral bells.
Fruits and vegetables: Plant Jerusalem artichokes (sunchokes), strawberries and rhubarb. Direct seed radishes, beets and chard. Start peppers, tomatoes and eggplants indoors. Plant bare-root asparagus now through April. At lower elevations, plant potatoes now through May.
Dill is a useful culinary herb
and attracts beneficial insects to your garden !
Trees and shrubs: Plant bare root ornamentals. Transplant living Christmas trees outside. Buy Ceanothus and other drought-tolerant spring-blooming plants now to get the color you prefer.
