With spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to prepare the garden and ensure everything is ready for the refreshing season ahead. From ordering key items to sprucing up your garden after months of wintery mayhem, there are lots of things you can be doing to get your outdoor space ready for springtime.
Flower Beds and Plant Pots
Going around and giving your flower beds and plant pots a good tidy up will really help to neaten up the area and give you clear visibility on the condition of your flowers. You often find that after a few months of bad weather, the flower beds are in need of a little TLC and your plant pots may have become damaged and be in need of repairing. Take a look online at retailers such as Two Wests to find everything you need for your raised planters, flower beds and pots to get them back to looking their best again.
Clean the Greenhouse
It doesn’t matter how clean and tidy you intend to leave your greenhouse at the end of your gardening projects, you can almost always guarantee you’ll have some kind of mess to deal with when you come back to work during the spring. Having a neat, clean and tidy greenhouse helps you to achieve great things, so make sure you get the jet wash and your essential greenhouse cleaning kit and bring the sparkle back for spring. Once you have everything neat and tidy, you can start to plan for your spring projects and get back to what you love doing most.
Invest in Summer Bulbs
Now is the perfect time to order some summer flowering bulbs to bring life and colour to your garden. By doing this in the spring, you are able to give the bulbs plenty of time to grow and progress in time for the summer months, which will make a hugely positive impact on your garden’s aesthetic. You want to look at plants like Allium, Begonia, Freesia and Crocosmia for some beautiful blooms that will create a stunning look within your garden.
Control Garden Pests
Spring temperatures don’t just allow your bulbs to bloom, but they also attract a certain level of pests with the warmer conditions. Controlling garden pests is essential if you want to have a successful gardening season, so it’s important to get on top of this early on. Invest in some quality pest control products, which you can find on Amazon and at most leading supermarkets and keep track of how often you’re treating certain areas in the garden. You want to protect your plants and flowers from any unwanted pests and avoid them from causing too much damage and destruction to your beautiful displays.
