Gardening: Plant now for cool season vegetables

Rodd Moesel advises about gardening and horticulture.

There are many small fruit and berry plants that are not only very healthy but do well in Oklahoma. Plant bareroot or container grown grapes, blackberries, raspberries, boysenberries, youngberries, gooseberries and blueberries now.

As you enjoy the early flowers of crocus and daffodils don't forget that this is the time to use pre-emergent weed killers or herbicides to kill the crabgrass and summer weed seeds in your lawn before the weeds even sprout and come up. This is the easiest chance to control these weeds of the whole season. Visit with your nurseryman to select the best product for your yard and get this “birth control” for weeds applied before the Redbud trees are done flowering. Enjoy the pretty days out in your yard and have fun raising your own garden and fresh, healthy food.
