Whether you’re a first-time gardener or a long-time pro, it can be overwhelming to think about approaching your garden after some time away. But don’t worry—if you follow the right steps, you can get everything sorted in no time, and even enjoy yourself along the way.
If you’re not sure how to get started, consider these three important tips, which will get your space prepped and ready to go for the season ahead.
Weeds be gone. Unless you are an extremely diligent gardener, there is probably a small colony of weeds living in your garden that need to be removed before you can get to work planting your new seeds. Make sure you get the roots, too—otherwise the weeds will be back before you know it.
Fertilize, fertilize, fertilize. Aside from space, plants also need healthy soil. One of the easiest ways to ensure they’ll grow quickly is fertilizer. Grab yourself a trusted organic brand and create a nice thick layer for your seeds to soak up.
Tidy up. If you’re looking to grow different types of plants in your garden, do some research as to how much space they’ll need, and structure your gardening plot appropriately. A well-mapped out space will create healthier, faster growing plants.
