Spring planting with a grow light system is a great way to get a jump start with your flower and/or garden seeds. Planting seeds and watching them grow is not only a great way to save money, it’s fun for adults and kids.
Start spring bulbs indoors and they will be nearing bloom by the time the weather has warmed up enough to plant them outside. Plant the bulbs in a nice container and then instead of planting them, set them around on your patio to add color to your outdoor living area.
Getting ready for spring planting is a good time to remove any mulch you might have placed around your perennials for the winter. Removing the old mulch will help the new foliage grow. Cut back any ornamental grasses you have before the new growth for the season begins.
Most shrubs and trees will respond well to spring pruning. If you have any questions or concerns about your particular trees, contact a local nursery in your area and they should be able to help. You should also spray fruit and shade trees to eliminate insect eggs and start your summer with a clean slate.
Spray your lawn with a good soil conditioner to release the stored up nutrients already in your soil to make your lawn lush and green as soon as the weather warms up.
These are just a few ideas that can be done to get ready for spring planting and the summer. With just a little time and money, you can get your lawn, trees and flower beds ready for a beautiful summer season.
