Planning your spring flower garden
Very soon winter will begin to say goodbye. In the coming weeks, you will see that little by little the temperatures take off and the time to prepare the garden for spring will begin. It will be necessary to make modifications in terms of positions, care and irrigation of our plants, and other actions to consider.
There are many who lose sight of important things when preparing the garden with the winter end. The location of the plants is essential, especially since the sunlight begins to be greater each new day. Spring is one of the most grateful seasons for the garden. As the days go by, the temperature becomes more pleasant and the sun moments that can be enjoyed are greater.
At this time of the year, preparing the garden to have it great is one of the most satisfying tasks that can be done. After the harsh winter, you may find that some of your plants are not as expected, especially if you like the ones with flowers.
It is possible that winter has spoiled many of your garden areas, especially the seasonal plants. The first thing you must do is remove all the branches and dry leaves that you find and clean as much as possible. Pruning is also particularly important; you already know that the perfect time is during the vegetative stop of the plant or shrub you have.
Once you have done this exterior cleaning, the step is to fertilize the soil with a quality substrate, something vital for the plants to grow strong and vigorous. You will have to use different products depending on the kinds of plants you choose.
Think about the colours you intend for your garden and take note of the plants that will be part of it. Once you have done this, you must arrange them in the made areas and transplant them carefully, to achieve a perfect composition for the whole summer. It is important that the first irrigations are with plenty of water, so the land settles better.
