So…what about no snow in MN? We gardeners think we need lots of snow for spring plants to prosper…however, the run-off from the snow is actually more of a flood danger rather than helping with the moisture level.  The ground is frozen and will accept very little of the water as it runs along its path.  What gardeners will be praying for is an early spring rain…Now is the time to go out and do some of that winter pruning of trees and shrubs.  You can see where the limbs are crossed and where the branches are too close together…trees needs to have some space for the air to whistle through and that also helps the undergrowth.   The health of your trees depends upon you.  It is easier to care for trees than to take an old one down and wait for the time for it to grow up into a healthy addition to your landscape.
