Spring is the perfect time to get your garden ready for the growing season. Here are a few tips to help you prepare your garden for spring:
Clean up the garden bed: Start by removing any dead plants, weeds, and debris from the garden bed. This will help to prevent pests and diseases from overwintering and will create a clean, healthy environment for your new plants.
Compost: One good thing about clearing away all of that organic matter from the garden is that you can put much of it in the composter. In the spring you should make a point of turning over the compost pile. It has been working hard over the winter and you’ll find that the bottom layer will make an excellent mulch – perfect to spread around your flower bed.
Prune shrubs and trees: Pruning helps to stimulate new growth and can also improve the overall appearance of your garden. Be sure to prune any dead or damaged branches, and trim back any overgrown shrubs or trees.
Plan your plantings: Take some time to plan out your plantings for the season. Consider the location, size, and care requirements of each plant, and choose a mix of annuals, perennials, and vegetables to create a diverse and beautiful garden.
Start seeds indoors: If you want to get a head start on the growing season, you can start seeds indoors in a sunny window or under grow lights. This is a great way to get a jump on the season and ensure that you have a wide variety of plants to choose from.
