Gardening Tips to Prepare for Spring

Posted: Updated:

With spring around the corner, now is a good time to start doing some work in your garden.

Dan Sinnett, the assistant regional manager at Southwood Landscape and Garden Center located at 9025 South Lewis Ave said there are several activities gardeners can conduct at this time of year.

The cold and dry winter likely left some plants damaged but now gardeners can do some fertilizing to try to repair the damage.

Other necessary cleaning activities for your garden include weeding or mulching the garden bed.

Sinnett said now is a great time to plant trees, shrubs, or even pansies, which would bloom sometime around May.

Sinnett also said gardeners need to wait to plant tender annuals such as petunia's or vegetables.

A typical mistake Sinnett sees among gardeners is over-watering. He said trees and shrubs only need to be watered once or twice a week while flowers should watered about every other day depending on the situation.

With the possible frost coming tonight, don't forget to cover any tender plants with new growth.
