Preparing the garden for spring

These 10 tips will help you prepare your garden for spring. Use the quiet winter period to ensure a healthy and flourishing garden for the coming season.

  1. Fertilize the soil
    Fertilize the soil in the beds with compost or organic fertilizer to increase the nutrient density and improve the soil structure.

  2. Prepare the beds
    Remove weeds and old plant debris from the beds. Loosen the soil with a hoe and add a layer of mulch to retain moisture and prevent weed growth.

  3. Check tools
    Check your garden tools for damage and sharpen the blades. Well-maintained tools make gardening much easier.

  4. Replace defective tools
    Garden tools that can no longer be repaired should be disposed of. Think about what you need and buy the right garden tools.
  5. Create planting plans
    Think about which plants you want to grow this season. Pay attention to the needs of each plant and plan how you can best group and place them.

  6. Create a compost heap
    Start a compost heap or renew the existing one. Compost provides valuable nutrients for your plants and helps to improve the soil.

  7. Planting early bloomers
    Plant bulbs of early bloomers such as crocuses, daffodils and tulips to give your garden an early burst of color. These can often be planted in late winter.

  8. Plan lawn care
    Consider whether your lawn needs freshening up. Schedule scarifying, fertilizing and reseeding to promote a dense and healthy lawn.

  9. Preventing pests and diseases
    Find out about common pests and diseases in your region. Take preventative measures, such as setting up beneficial insect hotels or selecting resistant plants.
  10. Set up birdhouses and insect hotels
    Encourage the colonization of useful animals by putting up birdhouses and insect hotels. These support natural pest control and pollinate your plants.

With these preparatory measures, you can ensure that your garden shines in all its glory in spring. Good luck and enjoy gardening!
