Why Spring Is Great For Gardening

Why Spring Is Great For Gardening

Spring is the favorite season by a lot of people and it is no doubt the best season for gardening. After the snow and frost, Spring breathes life into our favorite flowers and plants and that is why sprouting blossoms symbolizes spring.

Water, light, soil, and warmth are the basic needs for a plant to grow and these four are present during Spring.

A plant would blossom with just the right amount of warmth and light, that is why the amount of sunlight present during this season is perfect for a budding flower, plant, or tree. Spring is also known as a showery season and the amount of rain during this season is perfect to water plants without really drowning them. Also, during Spring, the day gets longer which allows more heat from the sun to be absorbed by the air and soil thus it benefits growing tiny buds. Spring offers a favorable growing condition for plants in your garden as we wait for summer.

To help you get ready for your Spring gardening, below are some helpful tips to get you started:

Clean Your Garden

Winter has ended, and it is time for a garden clean-up. Get rid of fallen branches and twigs, dead leaves, and weeds that have quickly sprouted just after the last snow and frost. The sun is out and it is also a great time to fix your shed and garden storage if winter has damaged them.

Prune

Prune your trees and shrubberies. Pruning will stimulate the growth of your garden plants. For newly planted flowers, plants, and trees, pruning them as they start to grow bigger will immensely help them in steady growth.  Prune them right and you will see great improvement in your growing plants.

Start Your Compost Pit or Pile 

Organic fertilizers are the best source of nutrients for your plants. Composting sounds intimidating to others, but it is actually very easy to start in your backyard. There are tons of resources on the internet on how to do it effectively and efficiently.

Clean Your Garden Accessories and Decorations

If you have bird feeders and birdbaths, clean them when Spring arrives from water deposits that could have built up during winter. Also, during Spring you will notice that birds and butterflies will show up more often, and having a clean garden helps them to also thrive in your environment.

Fill Up Your Soil

Organic fertilizers and composted materials are best to use to replenish your soil. Your soil would have lost essential nutrients during the winter which is why before planting your vegetables and flowers, replenishing your topsoil is a priority.
