February is great for kisses (real and chocolate), but it’s hard coming up with gardening ideas because the weather is so, well, cruddy.  Marie Iannotti, garden guide at About.com says: “Gardeners in warm climates don’t know what kind of weather to expect… Gardeners in cold climates have put the holidays behind them and just want to see the sun…”

“That doesn’t stop the true gardener,” she says; it’s a month for planning and pruning. Here are her three Feb. tips for every gardener in the Northern hemisphere, regardless whether you can get outdoors or not:
Finish catalog shopping: order seeds and plants
Keep an eye on houseplant pests
Get your garden tools in order
