Trees with thin tender bark such As apples apples and apricots Benefit from a painting of White la Tex on the trunks and main branches. This goes a Long Way to prevent Sun scald occurring in March. The paint also to at least some extent discourages rabbits and mice. Gather leaves. When put through a shredder they make Fine mulch. Leaves form the biggest available bulk for the compost pile. None should be wasted. The Only ones for burning Are those carrying disease or heavy infestation of insects. Get the bulbs in the ground at once. Gather seeds wanted for Plant increase. Acorns Wal nuts hazels horse Chestnut. And seeds of sugar Maple Apple Plum Cherry Apricot. And such Are sown in a pre pared seedbed by about the Middle of the month.
