The State of the Garden. 2015 was the wettest year in the Sandhills since 1887. With a measured rainfall of 78 inches our plants should be well watered. I hope for a beautiful display of spring flowers with allof this moisture. Apply slow release fertilizer to unestablished trees and shrubs now. No need to fertilize plants unless necessary. Apply Horticultural oil to plants with a history of insect pests. As the weather warms, use irrigation only when absolutely necessary. Get out and enjoy the few nice rain free days we are having. Deer are a problem.
