While spring is the ideal time to work in your garden, if you want to make the most of the good weather, it makes sense to prepare now, just before spring in upon us. It is advisable to carry out some prep work at the end of winter and here are 5 ways to get your garden ready for spring:

 

 

Make sure your garden is clean after winter

Winter weather can be depressing but it can also have a huge impact on the condition and cleanliness of your garden. Before you get stuck into spring-based activities, take the time to review your garden and make sure that everything is clean and tidy.

You may need to remove debris such as leaves or broken tree branches, and the sooner you start on removing weeds, the better. It is also smart to take the time to prune trees and branches at this time of year.

Get your garden tools ready

Before you start working in the garden, you should review the condition of your garden tools. If they have been sitting unused over winter, you may find that your tools need a clean and some even may need replacing. Reviewing these tools before you start working in your garden will prevent you from being halted, when looking to build some momentum.

Review the soil and ensure it is ready to plant in

Before you start planting, you should turn the soil over, ensure it is raked out and then clear away any weeds or mess. You should then add compost to the soil, and you should do this a few weeks before you plan to plant anything in order to allow the compost time to mix with the soil.

Know the plants or vegetables that are ideal for spring

If you want to achieve great results, it makes sense to focus on growing plants or vegetables that are best suited to this time of year and your type of soil. There is no need to rewrite the rule-book when caring for your garden, follow the advice and guidance of experts who have considerable experience in this line of work.

If you’re looking to plant vegetables that are perfect for spring, you should consider:

  • Spinach
  • Chard
  • Radishes
  • Lettuce
  • Peas
  • Kale

All of these vegetables can enhance the look of your garden while ensuring you have some food to add to your table. Whether you want to be more self-sufficient or you like the idea of growing something of your own that has a big impact, now is the time to take action.

Make sure your soil is ready for planting. Take a moment to re-read the previous point to maximise your output.
