4 Tips to Get Your Garden Ready for Spring

Hydrangea in bloomPunxsutawney Phil was right – spring has sprung! Flowering trees and shrubs in North Georgia are already showing their colors, and along with the profusion of blooms, we’ll soon be doused in the familiar pollen that accompanies them.

If you haven’t started preparing your garden for spring, now’s the time to grab your spade and get to work! Here are some spring gardening tips to help you prepare for the growing season!

  • Get rid of debris – Clean up any dead plants, weeds, leaves, and fallen branches. This is also a good time to prune if any of your perennials have gotten a little out of hand.
  • Clean and organize your tools – A little soap and water should take care of most tools, and mineral spirits can be used on wooden handles to help keep them from cracking.
  • Refresh your soil – Start by raking and tilling your soil. You will also want to add a little compost or manure to help keep your soil nutrient-rich.
  • Make a plan – We can help! Consider what you want out of your garden, from deer-resistant plants to pollinator-friendly blooms, low-maintenance landscaping to show-stopping stunners.
