Assemble your gardening tools
Winter is coming to an end, and this is a strong reminder that you need to draw out all your gardening tools and put them to some use. Check all the tools carefully, and if there are any which need replacement, get them. Wash up all the tools with soap and make use of mineral spirits in the cleaning of wooden handles since the spirits help in the prevention of splintering of wood. Once spring arrives, get them to work.
Clean up the garden
Winter makes us lazy and careless. We forget to take care of thegarden, and because of that, we see all kinds of unwanted growth and dirt all over. The sight would give a sudden realisation that there is a long way to go before you sit back and relax, but let that not bring your motivation down, and instead, channelize all your energy in the cleaning and pruning processes. Trim dead or broken branches; weed out unwanted growth, plant seeds, and water them
Once all cleaned up, your garden will give a grand welcome to spring!
Make a detailed plan
Planning is the actual starting point in making your garden spring ready. In order to do practical planning, seek consultation with experts and find out best vegetables and flowers found in your zone. Head to a regional nursery and extract as much planting advice as possible.
Many gardeners have different perspectives about spring, and therefore, their choices in plants significantly vary. You may want to have too many colours in your garden so you might want to get more flowers than vegetables; similarly, many gardeners like to spend time planting vegetables and fruits.
Now you know how much important planning is. If you do not plan beforehand, you might expend physical and material resources unnecessarily.
Do not give in to impatience
Impatience is the biggest enemy to gardeners, and therefore, it is absolutely important that you do not give in to its temptation. You know gardening takes time, and especially when you are back to gardening after a long winter break and you know it will be all the more difficult to contribute. But, do not give in and continue maintaining the garden as planned.
Keep yourself engaged in the garden until and after spring. You can do deadheading—cutting off fading flowers from the healthy stem—and many other things to ensure that! Just keep calm!
