Avid gardeners are seeing signs of life in their gardens this time of year. Snowdrops and crocuses are done, hyacinths and daffodils are blooming, tulilps are in foliage and peony shoots are showing their red heads through the snow - no wait, rain - nope, snow after all.
+
<p>
-
This is a good time to clear any leaves and dead stems that appeared after fall clean up and apply new mulch to your flower beds. This helps stop the weeds before they even get started. It is also a good time to divide perennials like day lilies, hostas and iris - you may still even get flowers this year from the transplanted tubers and roots.

Check your tool cabinet for anything you are lacking. Good hand pruners, a potato fork, hoe and spade are basic garden tools that everyone should have. Gloves are good to spare your hands blisters while you dig, even if you like to have your fingers in the dirt planting. Kneeling pads, different shovels, rakes, garden cart, buckets or watering cans and hoses come in handy, as well.
