READY, SET, GROW
Five of our tried and true tips to creating a stylish spring garden:
- Absolutely number one, first thing, must do now is… cleanup. Rake to rid your garden of stray leaves, winter mulch and dead growth. Then, let the soil get air and sunlight before you begin gardening. It’s a good idea, however, to keep mulch nearby in case there’s an unseasonably cool temperature. It’s not unheard-of in early spring.
- Prune roses, fruit trees and hydrangeas to name a few before new growth occurs. This keeps them strong so they can resist diseases. The Fiskars Bypass Pruners are the perfect tool for completing your pruning duties!
- Plant cool-season annuals from The Home Depot in odd-numbered groupings. This will create a balanced garden bed, and your annuals will look larger, livelier and healthier too.
- In moist conditions, there’s no better time to plant trees and shrubs. So go big. Make sure the area where the root meets the tree trunk is just above the soil to avoid planting the roots too deeply.
- Water your plants with chamomile tea every once in a while (but make sure it’s not piping hot!). Odd but true, it’s great for keeping your plants healthy.
