Get ready for Spring gardening with these gardening tips and gardening tricks! Your garden will look amazing with these gardening tips!
Guys! Can you believe it? Spring is literally just around the corner, and you know what that means! It’s time to start gardening! I’ve been on Pinterest CONSTANTLY lately looking for really fun (and easy) gardening prep projects for Spring. Any gardener will tell you how much easier it is to “get back into the swing of things” when you have a majority of your harder chores completed and out of the way! Here are 5 things that you need to know before you begin sowing those first seeds! It’ll be here before you know it!
#1 Did you know that the beginning of Spring (now) is the best time to begin starting your seeds? Don’t fret if you live in a cooler climate (there’s still snow on the ground here!) to begin sewing seeds, all you need to do is add water! Wrap seeds in a damp paper towel until they begin to sprout. It is important to realize that each variety of plants needs a different amount of heat, water, and sunlight to properly grow. Check out this seed starting guide from Better Homes and Gardens for more seed starting tips!
Did you know that Pansies thrive in the springtime? They often begin growing before tulips and lillies start to sprout, and they are surprisingly hardy. They love the cooler weather! If your yard is needing a bit of color, add some pansies to your yard! Rodales Organic Life has a really awesome tutorial when it comes to growing your own!
The time after the snow melts, and before your plants begin sprouting is the perfect time to prune (and trim!) trees, rose bushes, or other plants. Check out this guide from Bless My Weeds to learn how to effectively trim your fruit trees. However, it should be mentioned that pruning rose bushes can get to be a bit of a hassle, but Better Homes and Gardens has you covered with this incredible tutorial!
Is your green thumb itching but the weather just won’t seem to comply? Sometimes, the ground in the early spring is too hard and too cool to properly nourish and support growing plants. If you find this is the case in your grow zone, try container gardening instead! It’s easier to control the soil temperature (you can move them inside!) in containers, and you can ALWAYS transplant your container garden later! Bonnie Plants has more information!
