Get Garden Ready for Springtime
Welcome to the Honda Gardening Club.
Springtime is just around the corner. Whatever you are looking forward to as the seasons change; here are a few tips to help you prepare the ground for your new bedding plants or to help coax your vegetable patch back to full recovery.
Weather conditions can vary dramatically across different regions. Wherever your garden is situated, you may find that it is in need of a little extra care once winter is over. If you happen to be in an area that sees higher rainfall, you may also have to help your lawn, beds and borders recover from the damaging side effects of excess water.
Here are 3 key steps to getting your garden ready for spring.
• We’ve mentioned it before but, mulching really is key to improving the quality of the soil in your garden. A hefty layer of soil-improver will do wonders when it comes to suppressing weed growth, improving moisture levels and boosting those all-important nutrients.
• We’d also wholeheartedly suggest trying an organic fertiliser; chicken manure pellets are an excellent way to boost good bacteria and stimulate bug and worm life. Though do bear in mind that they can have a pretty pungent smell, it’s probably best to apply them to your lawn during cold weather.
