Getting the Garden Ready for Spring

Overwintering is always a pleasure – if, of course, you work hard in the fall to can vegetables from your own seeds. At this time, nature is resting: once the blooming and lush cherry boughs are exposed, the beds are hidden under a thick layer of snow …… You have the opportunity to spend more time with your family. That’s what usually happens next: how about …… a new spring cycle coming up before I have time to run sleds and hit enough snowballs! How does a smart gardener do it? Get ready for the awakening of spring that starts in the fall! Here’s how it happens and what to do if it doesn’t settle in the fall, You will learn about Getting the Garden Ready for Spring in the RunSun article.

3 Easy Steps

Ignoring the temporary nuances for a moment, let’s talk in general terms about what it takes to “start” a new gardening cycle. There are only three steps. 1.

1. territory cleaning

You know what happens locally in March: streams gurgle, somewhere old trash is exposed, old leaves, and, in the worst case, human waste. So everything is done according to standard procedures – shovel in hand and get to work. At the same time, we remove the mulching material under which our perennial flowers and shrubs are safely warmed, brush off their dry leaves and blow off dust particles. Sometimes a little drama plays out at this stage – plants are found that cannot overwinter, are sick, and die. They can only be uprooted and, if possible, burned…

2. Preparation of planting materials

Well, of course – there is no seed material for them. It all starts with personal preferences or established traditions. For example, the head of the family announces the list: “This spring we plant tomatoes, peppers, onions, peas, and corn, for the beauty of the yard – geraniums and petunias” (by the way, these two saplings flowers are prepared in February). The date of preparation of seedlings depends on the species but mainly lasts from February to April. We will discuss this more later…

3. preparation of the ground

Let’s remember where your garden area starts and ends, and the first thing we’ll do is dig it up around the perimeter – remove stones, weeds, and other debris. In addition, tilling is mandatory – using hand gardening tools, shovels, rakes, aerators, or hand tractors to till the land to a depth of 20-25 cm. As a result of this process, the mounds of soil are broken up and the airproof holes are hammered like a blender – an air space is created between them. What does it seem to give? The advantage of solidity –

Better planting, and favorable conditions for the growth of seedling roots. …
As for fertilizers, of which there are many – for each species and type of plant, there is its own fertilizer. On the jar always write (and depict) where you can add such plants.

Preparing the Ground: in Advance or Short Term?

In order to have good soil for further sowing in the spring, it is better to plow the land with mineral fertilizers before the first snowfall in autumn. How does this work? The truth is that the fertilizers in this program are highly concentrated and chemically based, and are therefore intended for “early spreading “*. In March, the snow gradually melts away and the nutrients are perfectly absorbed by the meltwater. This is a slow but effective way to improve the preparation of the ground. * It can also be used before planting in strict doses and with care…

If you regain consciousness shortly before planting, leave the garden for 3 months and “starve” under the snow coat …… Yes, no problem! You can also safely wait for the warming and start to rejuvenate the soil according to the classic scheme: loosen, actively fluff, and feed the land with organic fertilizers: these can be purchased “from the can” in liquid, as well as temporary methods of natural origin: manure, humus or compost. …

Spring Seedlings and Seeds

Thus, the seeds have been in preparation since February. The abundance of the future harvest (and the quality of the land to be cultivated) depends to a large extent on how this stage is handled. Let’s say you have compiled a list of vegetable crops needed for the upcoming season, and even purchased seeds and seedling accessories.

March is a super active month for preparing seedlings – at least flowers and even vegetables, as well as seedlings of fruit and berry shrubs and trees. Even beginners should have no problem: pass around bags with images of bright flowers or juicy vegetables, and you can stop and read the packet with the dates for sowing, germination, picking, planting in the ground, and the specific varieties that are unique to each one. And always find on the Internet all the necessary information about the selection of seedlings/land and advice on watering seedlings…

Another interesting “preparatory operation” is related to germination. This is an example of a beloved potato because you can’t get rid of it – but you will still plant it during the May holidays. Here, 30-40 days before that, they are germinating in various ways at will. If you choose the light method (stack the potatoes in a box with holes and leave them in diffused light) – start in March, if the wet method (when the potatoes are placed on a moist substrate) – start in April, say 20 days. …

By the way. When the day comes for you to plant any crop of your choice in the open field (April to May), and then immediately before or after planting*, be sure to treat your “little children” and weeds with special chemicals (herbicides that prevent the emergence of weeds).

  • This depends on the type of herbicide – before or after emergence. Don’t forget to mark your bed with a label with the signature variety – to avoid confusion later on about what is growing…

How About Watering?

Experience shows that after overwintering, irrigation problems can occur interesting curiosity. But this is not the case. If you have done all the setup since last year, that’s great. Simply look at the barn, shake the dust off all irrigation and irrigation fittings, loosen the irrigation hoses and check the use of the pipes. But it’s also possible to suddenly find all kinds of defects in your equipment, such as cracks that leak whether you like it or not. This happens because of improper storage (this does not apply to frost-proof irrigation systems) or because of defective and initially low-quality gardening tools. In general, in the spring we are already giving due consideration to how quickly watering can be scheduled, as the summer ahead will certainly be as hot as usual…

Spring Pruning of Fruit Trees

Due attention is also given to fruit trees and shrubs after winter dormancy. What if I don’t have apple trees in my garden? You can find them in almost every region in Europe. There are also cherries, sweet cherries, apricots, and peaches …… all this early March charm, which does not wait for the first buds to appear and need to be organized. Such a role-playing game – a summer resident picks up a pruning gardening tool (usually a pruner) and performs a “big haircut”.

There are two types of pruning that are both important and necessary – these are shortening individual branches and thinning (crown formation) by completely removing some branches. In the first case, by cutting off only a part, you get the effect of “awakening buds” – then they grow by leaps and bounds. And there are obviously dry, outdated branches on the tree, which appear sparse – this produces a good “rejuvenating” effect…

After pruning, all adult shrubs and trees are treated with a preservative (e.g. copper sulfate) so that the same apple tree is not destroyed by its main enemy, the bark beetle. In a nutshell. Now the fruit trees are ready to turn green and bloom!…

To sum up: it is clear that one rule works well in the garden – “timeliness”. Because nature doesn’t sleep, as they say, and whoever doesn’t have time is late. We want you to handle all your procedures with ease, which is not difficult if you always remember that your garden is your treasure. Be more diligent, act with love, and have handy gardening tools at hand – everything will be fine!…
