So to ensure you’re on your A game, we’ve created a list of spring garden tips and guidelines to help you better prioritize what has to be done to your garden so that your garden will bloom all year long. Check out these easy spring garden tips to start getting into springtime with your garden today. First, prepare your garden for blooming flowers. You can start by removing weeds and grass from the area, then mow the grass and burn off dead leaves and twigs. Then, fertilize your soil and apply an organic lawn fertilizer to help your garden flourish.
Next, give your garden a thorough raking with the brush. This will remove much of the dirt and debris that may otherwise prevent the flower beds from growing properly. Finally, water your garden and remove any weeds that are starting to sprout. Make sure to water the flower beds thoroughly after fertilization and weed treatment to ensure your garden blooms as scheduled.
Spring is also a great time to prune your flower beds. Remove dead branches, trim back hedges, and remove flowers that are in poor health or are no longer pleasing to you. Pruning can drastically improve the appearance of your garden in a very short amount of time. It also allows you to create a more natural looking landscape that will in turn improve your overall enjoyment of the garden. Once pruning, flower beds should be maintained daily, taking extra care not to touch the pruned areas. Remember, pruning is simply a way of adding dimension to your landscape.
Another factor to remember with spring planting is the importance of spacing. Spring blossoms bloom at the height they do because of a higher demand for water, so it’s important to allow enough distance between your flower beds for adequate blooming. If you space your flower beds too closely, the plants may overlap each other, reducing their flowering. Spreading your flower beds out will ensure maximum flowering space.
One final tip to consider with your spring planting is the timing of your planting. Many gardeners mistakenly plant their flowers in the winter before the flowers will begin to bloom in spring. This often results in lower production and a reduction in blooms. Instead, wait until the weather is warmer and continue to plant your garden in the fall months. This ensures that your garden will have all the vital ingredients for optimal blooming and healthy growth.
