Spring Has Sprung: How to Get Your Garden Growing Glamorously


Spring has sprung, which means it’s time to get our gardens ready. And what better way to get your glamorous garden growing than by following our list of easy tips & tricks? You already know that I’m all about warmer weather, and the moment that the first rays of sunshine hit my backyard, all I want to do is get my gardening tools ready and get to work. However, just like you — I don’t have too much time to waste. So, let’s cut to the chase and explore my favorite ways how to get your garden growing.

Setting the Stage — Soil, Cleanup, and Maintenance

What better way to start this gardening journey than by preparing the stage for a gorgeous and bountiful garden? You first have to activate your inner Monica Geller and get started on the garden cleanup. As boring as it may be, it’s a step that you shouldn’t miss out on. Clean your garden furniture, and get rid of any debris in your garden, dead foliage, or winter mulch that may have accumulated over the winter. This will not only make your garden look instantly more put together but also prevent the spread of disease and pests.

Next, turn your attention to your soil. Use a garden fork or tiller to loosen compacted soil and remove any weeds or unwanted vegetation. Incorporate organic matter such as compost, aged manure, or leaf mold to replenish nutrients and improve soil structure. This will give your plants a healthy foundation that they will thrive in.

Plan Your Plantings — Greens, Flowers, Herbs

Once your soil is prepped and ready, it’s time to decide what to plant in your spring garden. And honestly, this step is totally up to you. Maybe you want to turn your garden into a little farmer’s market filled with veggies, herbs, and fruits. Or maybe you only enjoy taking care of flowers. Maybe you want a mix of both? From leafy greens such as spinach and kale, herbs like parsley and cilantro, to flowers like daffodils and hyacinths — find something you like and enjoy taking care of.

When it comes time to plant your spring garden, take care to give each plant the space, sunlight, and water it needs to thrive. Follow spacing and planting depth guidelines, and water newly planted seeds or transplants thoroughly to help them establish roots. While your plants are growing, make sure to monitor for signs of pests or disease, and take prompt action to address any issues that arise.

Celebrating Spring in Your Garden

Finally, don’t forget to take time to savor the beauty and abundance of spring in your garden. You can go all out with spring decorations, or just add a few new details to your existing garden setup. Creating an inviting space where you and your loved ones can relax in is the best way to enjoy the changing seasons. Finally, it’s warm enough again to spend your time outside and enjoy your mornings or evenings overlooking your gorgeous outdoor space. So make sure you make the most out of that.
