Spring is in the air, and what better way to welcome it than by preparing your garden for a season of growth and beauty? If you’re new to gardening, don’t fret – we’ve got you covered with this beginner’s guide to getting your garden ready for spring.
Start with a plan. Decide what kind of garden you want and choose plants that will thrive in your climate. Make a sketch of your garden to help you visualize where to place each plant.
Clear out debris. Remove any dead plants or leaves from last season to make room for new growth.
Prepare the soil. Add organic matter like compost or manure to your soil to improve its quality and nutrient content.
Choose your plants. Pick plants that are appropriate for your garden’s sunlight and soil conditions. Consider planting a mix of annuals and perennials for a variety of colors and textures.
Water and fertilize regularly. Water your plants regularly, especially during dry spells, and fertilize them as needed to promote healthy growth.
With these tips, you’ll be well on your way to a beautiful and thriving garden. Check your zone and the Farmer’s Almanac to see what may grow best in your area. Don’t have a big yard or space? No problem! You can grow indoors or grow plants in a variety of pots! Remember, gardening is a learning process, so don’t be afraid to experiment and try new things!
