5 WAYS TO PLAN AHEAD FOR SPRING

If you want to utilise this spring at its best, the right time to start the preparation is right during the winter season. Here are five quick ways you can plan ahead of the spring season to see your dream garden.


Spring is just around the corner and soon you’ll be soon busy sowing seeds, growing plants, and nurturing your garden as it would be the time of the year when it comes back to life. By planning ahead of spring, you can get a head start on your new gardening year and enjoy a lush garden with your baby plants.


1. Clean Your Greenhouse

If you have a greenhouse, you know its importance, no need to brag about it. Well, this is the best time to give your greenhouse a deep clean and prepare it for the cuttings and seedlings of the summer. From the outside, wash it with a good detergent or disinfectant and remove grime, moss, and algae. It will allow more light to get in the house during the growing season.

2. Sow Seeds That Need a Longer Season

If you are planning to grow any plants that have a longer growing season, you can start sowing their seeds in January and February. However, you may need to start them in a heated propagator or anything similar to ensure healthy growth.

3. Start Rain Harvesting

One of the main requirements of your garden is water. This winter, install a water butt in your garden and make the most of the rainfall. Harvesting rainwater promotes environment friendly gardening. Moreover, it is the best type of water for your plants. Rainwater is especially good for rhododendrons and blueberries.

4. Get your Gardening Tools Ready

Prepare your gardening tools ready during the colder months - clean and sharpen them. Maintaining gardening tools will preserve them allowing you to save money in the long run. It also helps in preventing diseases.

5. Prepare a Composting Area

To make your gardening experience more nature-friendly, prepare a composting area in your garden. You can either buy a ready-to-use composite bin or make one on your own using spare wood. Dump all your organic waste there and get an enriched nutrient source for your green buddies.
