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.
