Monday is the official start to spring. But the planting season in Michigan doesn't begin until May.
There are some things you can do in the yard and garden. Clean up by removing limbs, leaves and old mulch. Removing old growth from perennials and ornamental grasses will give them a head start when temperatures begin to warm. Trees can be planted at this time and you can move existing plants. Grub control measures can also be started this early.
