Gardeners of all types are ready for the weather to permanently break so they can get out and move some soil. University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener, Candice Hart, says one thing gardeners can do right now is some pruning of different trees, but warns you need to be careful which trees you pick to prune. 



Hart says it is not too soon to get those gardens cleaned up if you can find a day that is warm enough to get out. She also notes, if you are up for it, it isn't too soon to get some things in the ground.



Master Gardeners at the University of Illinois Extension can help with any of your garden planning or planting needs. Contact or visit your local U of I Extension office to for help on any challenges you come across this season.
