Smart Tips for Spring Garden Preparation
All gardeners are looking forward to spring coming so that they could start preparing their garden for the blooming season and restore it after cold winter days. When the snow melts, and the water goes away, usually a garden looks very damp and dirty. Despite this, you should clean up last year's dry grass with the help of a rake, as well as broken branches, twigs and other debris. Pure ground quickly dries and begins to sprout young grass.
If there are places with poor grass, you can scatter the seeds, mixed with sand, around the area, and water the ground properly in order to speed up the grass germination. Now it's time to release the trees and bushes from their winter defense, which was used to prevent them from rodents during winter, since it may become harmful in spring, when the weather is warm and the air cannot circulate freely around the trees resulting in the bark rotting.
If you didn't treat the tress in your garden with a special sun protecting solution in fall, it can be done in spring. Mix ten liters of water with two and a half kilos of lime, one kilo of clay and three hundred grams of copper sulfate and apply this solution on the trunk bottoms and branches. If you don't have any of above-mentioned ingredients, you can simply wrap the bottoms of the tree trunks with the newspaper or any other light paper. The trees with low frost-resistant capabilities or the plants that were affected by the frost should be especially protected from the sun beams.
Spring is the best time for transplanting shrubs to a different location. Do this until they begin to blossom. Before the leaves appear the tree trunks plants should be treated with a solution, protecting from pests and insects.
Each garden is planted with perennial flowers and decorative shrubs. Don't rush to remove the dry fall and crop the plants until the temperature is high and stable. The frost can be changed by thaw dramatically thus baring the roots of perennial plants and cause serious affection.
