Prepare Your Spring Garden

Wondering how to prepare your spring garden? As your bulbs pop up through the soil, you will know that spring is definitely in the air. The birds will be singing and beginning to search for nesting spaces, and there will be more days with blue skies and warmer sunshine than we’ve seen over the winter months. Spring is truly food for the soul as we each feel like we are coming out of hibernation and getting ready for the months ahead. Here is how to prepare your spring garden. 

Prepare Your Spring Garden and Check Your Soil 

As you start to notice your bulbs popping up through the soil, you know it’s time when the garden is ready to burst into bloom.

  • Your soil may need some fresh nutrients to ensure it is replenished, ready for planting and growing in the seasons ahead.
  • If you didn’t give it fresh mulch in autumn, now might be the time to get a good application of well-rotted organic matter on your garden or allotment.
  • Don’t cover or much too close to young shoots. 

Clear Away Winter Debris to Prepare Your Spring Garden

After the wet and windy months have gone by, your garden may need a tidy up. Clear away any fallen branches, leaves, and other debris, plus remove any dead, diseased, or old plant foliage. Not only will that get you off to a good start in spring, but it will also give your bulbs the space they need, and you’ll be able to see them blooming much better. 

Prepare Your Spring Garden With Lists

Before you get too far into the spring, when seedlings are sprouting, plants need planting out. All the busy garden work starts. Make sure you write your plans on lists, label your plants, including your bulbs, because that way, when they finish flowering, and the foliage dies back, you will know which bulbs were growing where and you can plant around them without accidentally digging them up. 

Summer Colour Needed to Prepare Your Spring Garden

These flower bulbs can all be planted in spring to make sure your garden is full of colour in the summer:

  • Ranunculus
  • Lilies
  • Nerines
  • Freesias

There is no need for any bulb flowering gaps if you keep on top of the planting. Bulbs can be planted in pots and containers or beds and borders and bring so much to the garden with joy, colour, and fragrance. Happy spring!
