Tony's Tips:

Protect indoor houseplants by checking them now for insects, to prevent damage.

Wait until mid-March to re-pot indoor plants.

If you’re storing summer flowing bulb plants like begonias or gladiolas in your basement or attic, do a mid-winter check on them to ensure they are still firm.

Get a jump on spring by shopping for seeds, now available in garden centers.

If it’s nice enough to be outside, you can actually start dormant pruning of deciduous plants.
