Tips & Tricks
Is it a great time to get out in the garden?
Yes! February is a great time to cut back and prune some of our most popular landscape. Both cutting back and pruning are processes generally used to improve a plant's appearance or to encourage new growth. Many of us don’t think of pruning or cutting back in February, but it is actually the best time to cut back plants such as: Liriope (monkey/border grass) cut with mower or weed eater just to new growth; Ornamental grasses (all types) to about 12"–16"; Roses (Hybrid tea and grandiflora roses) prune off all diseased or spent canes, along with weak or spindly ones of a pencil or less in diameter. A good rose bush should have four to eight strong, healthy canes the diameter of your finger or larger. Most other hardy trees and shrubs are just waiting to be pruned as well… so as soon as we get that next 50° or so day… get out there with your pruners!

Bellevue Moments
Newport’s East Row Historic District is made up of two distinct neighborhoods: Mansion Hill and Gateway. The older of the two neighborhoods, Gateway, likely derived its name from a toll gate once situated at Sixth and Linden Streets in the early 1800s. That’s right, tolls were collected from those traversing to/from Newport/Bellevue. Recently, several members of Newport’s East Garden Club and BNA have teamed up to commemorate this historic landmark. Stay tuned as this dedicated committee works to bring this wonderful part of both our histories to notice.
