When spring rolls around there is work to be done. Make sure you make good use of your time and get the most out of your garden this season by reading and following these suggestions. A well planned and prepared garden in spring, will be a beautiful and blooming garden all summer long.
- Crocuses and daffodils are just starting to pop through the skeletal plants and dead leaves, making this the perfect time to get underway with spring cleaning for your garden beds and lawn.
- Don’t overprune roses, hydrangea and other budding plants. Pruning encourages new growth but can also stunt the size and number of flowers.
- Don’t forget that size matters. The cardinal rule of planting is obvious: tallest in back, medium in the middle, shortest in front.
“Judicious shearing and timing is everything when it comes to reaping an abundance of colorful, healthy flowers in your spring and summer garden.”
