5 Spring Gardening Tips

1. Clean the Garden

Remove dead leaves and get rid of weeds, making sure that you get the roots so they won't grow back. 

 
2. Trim Old Plants

Plants that survived the winter will need to be pruned so they'll grow anew in the spring.

 
3. Nourish the Soil

Add organic material like compost and manure so that your beds are ready for planting. 

 
4. Add Mulch

In addition to fertilizers and organic materials, you should think about adding mulch to your flower beds and garden. One to three inches of mulch helps to prevent weeds and diseases. It also keeps the moisture in the garden and maintains the temperature. 

 
5. Plant Flowers and Shrubs

Once you've got the garden in shape and handled all of the old plants, it's time to turn your attention to new plants.
