<i> For dedicated gardeners, here are suggestions from the California Assn. of Nurserymen on what to do in the garden this week:</i>

For spring fragrance plan on planting roses, and for fresh tasting fruits, consider fruit trees, strawberries, blackberries and more.

Remember to water plants under wide overhangs because they may not get enough moisture from winter rains.

Apply three inches of mulch to flower beds, around shrubs and trees and the winter vegetable garden to enrich the soil and keep it from compacting in the winter rains.

Brighten your spring garden by planting perennials: asters, chrysanthemums, foxglove and gaillardia are among many choices.
