Prepare your planting beds for roses, fruit and shade trees, cane berries and deciduous shrubs now available in bare-root form.
Prune your dormant fruit trees now; however, don't prune spring-flowering trees or shrubs until they have finished blooming.
If you received a plant as a gift, take care of it now so it will last. Azaleas and camellias should only be kept indoors for a short time and planted in moist, fertile soil with good drainage.
Keep your poinsettias looking good by pinching and pruning as they grow.
