Spring might seem like it’s a while away, but now is the time to start preparing your garden and laying the groundwork for Spring. To ensure that that your garden will flourish for the rest of the year, you need to start your prep work now.
Mulch your beds
If you want your garden to flourish in Spring, you need to mulch your garden in Winter to ensure that the necessary nutrients don’t die off in the cold weather. When choosing the perfect mulch, pick a sustainable mulch with low impact on the environment, that will enrich your soil as it breaks down.
For many plants, pruning is an important job to do at this time of the year. However, don’t go crazy and start to prune everything right now – you want to prune your deciduous fruit trees (except apricots) and any plants that bloom in summer!
What to plant?
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to plant this season. Look at planning lettuce, celery, broad beans, potato, garlic, radish and spinach. You could also plant ornamental and fruit trees now – such as figs, bare-rooted roses and non-invasive vines.
But when it’s cold outside, the last thing you might want to be doing is standing outside in the wet and windy weather. If that’s the case, then get in touch with us today. Our knowledgeable team can get your garden ready for spring, so you don’t have to.
