Spring Tips for Gardening

Spring is here and it is time to put those green thumbs to work! Here are our top 5 spring tips that every gardener needs to put into action!

  1. Prune – This is a great time for you to prune! Early spring is when we suggest pruning your dormant plants such as roses, ornamental grasses, and evergreen shrubs.
  2. Mulch – If you’re planning on using certain types of mulch, this is the time to do it. Remove all leaves and debris in the area where you’d like to mulch. This will help the mulch to do its job insulating root systems, retaining moisture and controlling weeds. Generally, we suggest a good coating of around 3 inches for the mulch.
  3. Fertilize – You can fertilize trees and shrubs with slow release fertilizer this time of year. Be sure to read directions properly and only apply what is recommended. Ruining your beautiful trees due to over-fertilization is a costly mistake.
  4. Plant – Wait until after the last freeze and plant new trees and shrubs so that they get a full season of growth ahead.
  5. Prepare – Get your mower serviced and all garden tools sharpened and oiled. This will make sure that your tools are prepared and working at their optimal ability all season.
