Getting Your Hands Dirty in the Garden
Before starting to plant new shrubs or even plow your soil, check your gardening equipment and see if it is still suitable for your tasks. Some of the equipment, which are made of metal might be a little rusty and might not be usable anymore, after keeping them for a long time. Prepare a checklist of the tools you need and make sure it is complete to save your time from having to go back and forth your garage or the hardware shop for the missing ones.
If a few of the plants have made past the winter season, begin pruning them to allow better growth of healthy buds into flowers. If you have trees in your yard, you must also prune the dead branches from it after the first spring growth. Start pulling weeds from the soil before they start spreading in your garden.
Pick your spring plants carefully. Before choosing plants on early spring, be sure to pick plants that can withstand a little frost. If trees are on your checklist, choose fruit-bearing trees that not only add up color to your garden, but also supply your home with delicious fruits. It is also best to do a soil test before planting new shrubs; this will ensure that the flowers are in perfect condition when they bloom.
