Spring is almost here and you probably dream about having a beautiful garden this season. It’s the right time to start fresh, so you need to prepare your garden for spring. Here you’ll see a few tips on how to prepare your garden for spring.
Clear your garden of weeds and dead leaves
Flowers and other plants need to grow in a tidy place, so you need to have a tidy plot of soil if you want them in your garden. If you have perennial plants, you should cut back the dead growth. Dig up about 2.5-3 inches of organic matter, such as compost, and dispose.
Plan ahead for summer-flowering plants
If you want to have beautiful summer-flowering plants in your garden, you should plant them in early spring.
Get the gardening tools ready to use
Your gardening tools need to be clean before you use them. Cleanliness is important even when it comes to gardening, so make sure your gardening tools are in great shape. They may carry bugs or diseases if not cleared properly, so ensure you give them a good scrub before you use it. A dirty gardening tool comes with a great risk of infecting your plants.
Remove any unwanted pests
You should get rid of any hibernating pests, including slugs, snails, and aphids before they don’t even have the chance to get to your plants. Ensure you particularly look for the white vine weevil larvae, which lives in the compost and feeds on plant roots.
Plant various seeds
You may ask a neighbor for old seedlings or even look for seeds you’ve never planted before at hardware stores. However, before you plant anything you don’t know, ensure you read on what plants you’re planting in your garden. Some plants aren’t quite friendly with others and end with taking up the entire plot. Also, don’t forget to plan your garden plot on paper, so you know where everything will grow.
