April wildflowers are always beautiful and a welcome sight in the garden after the cold winter. If you want wildflowers in your own landscape, plan to plant seeds in late September or early October for next spring’s blooms.

Pruning chores this month include azaleas, wisteria and climbing roses after the flowers have faded. Roses such as Lady Banks, Veilchenblau, American Beauty and Swamp Rose only bloom in spring. Remove all dead, old or crossed canes. Prune remaining canes lightly after flowering and avoid further pruning until next year’s flowering.
