Spring Gardening Planner 

Early Spring

Sometime around March 20, it’s time to trim back your ornamental grasses, borders, and any autumn perennials you may have. Start preparing your beds by weeding and replenishing the soil. Prune your flowering shrubs, cut back lavender hedges, and trim your rose bushes. If you have half-hardy annuals, move them inside for the season. Finally, sprinkle granular fertilizer around all trees, shrubs, and perennials.

Mid Spring

gardeningSometime in the first couple weeks of May, you can plant perennials,  and summer-flowering bulbs. If you have vegetables, it’s time to sow them. If you have perennial herbs, stake them. At this point, your soil needs a hefty layer of mulch and another round of weeding.

General Maintenance

Throughout the season and all year-round, keep your eyes peeled for dead or diseased wood, which will need to be removed. Clean your cutting tools regularly to avoid the spread of plant diseases. Start a compost bin and keep it full of organic material that can be used to nurture your plants’ soil.

Follow these tips, and you will be rewarded with a lush, well-maintained garden all season long.
