Posted by on Mar 4, 2019 in Uncategorized

Spring is coming. First days of March are the best time to begin preparations for the new season and wake up your garden a bit. Even if winter doesn’t want to surrender and it is still cold outside, you can start growing many plants indoors and just wait for warmer days.

Here are a few other tips on how you and your garden can get a head start:

Planning your planting makes these preparations easy. It’s a good idea to talk to a gardening consultant. He will inspect your garden, discuss your ideas and preferences to choose the best flowers, veggies, fruits and herbs to plant. You can spend this saved time looking for inspiration on Pinterest or, if you have an artist inside, do DIY plant labels.

Make or repair raised beds

These beds can make your gardening much easier, especially if you don’t own a villa with gardens the size of a football field. It’s a good way to start experimenting with different types of soil. And you don’t need to be Bub The Builder to create one, even some old cupboard drawers will be just as good.

Mulch

No matter if you are lucky enough to have a big green garden or raised beds are the only way you can grow your veggies and flowers, a good portion of mulch is almost indispensable. It will help retain moisture in the soil, contribute to its health or reduce winter injuries. And how good it looks!
