If leaves on your citrus trees are looking pale, magnesium or iron shortage are probably the cause. This issue frequently appears in the fall. See Pale citrus leaves.

Add garden compost to the bed where you prepare to plant garlic throughout Moon stage later on this month.

Also inspect that soil pH is close to neutral (7.0 ). Garden enthusiasts in temperate environments can plant spring bulbs and lilies this month, and garden enthusiasts in temperate and cool environments can divide irises and daylilies.

The following gardening recommendations is a shortened list for veggies, fruit trees and some cooking herbs that can be planted or planted throughout February in Australia and New Zealand. A thorough month-to-month guide that consists of planting times for the whole garden, in addition to when to fertilize, prune, weed, take cuttings or divide plants, can be found in the journal area of my book Easy Organic Gardening and Moon Planting (Scribe Publications, 2006, 2009, 2012, 2017), and e-book (Booktopia 2012, 2017).
