Throw on an extra pair of socks and brave the winter weather to get your garden ready for spring!
For an instant face lift for your garden clear up any dead or ragged foliage and cut back dead growth on shrubs and trees. Be sure to do this before new growth appears. Pay attention in particular to perennial shrubs that need their woody branches cut back each spring in order to encourage new growth. Only ever cut off branches that show no buds. Plants that bloom early in Spring often grow their buds at the end of summer, but they do not develop until after the cold winter season. Get to know your plants well so that you don’t accidentally chop off the new growth for this year!
Add a good layer of mulch or compost to add plenty of nutrients to the soil to fuel your plants Spring growth spurt. Once the soil has dried out from any snow or frost, you can turn this compost into the beds, but watch out for any spring bulbs that you planted last year.
Make the effort early, and you will be rewarded with plenty of spring flowers.
