Who else is counting down the days until spring? Our team at Journey Home Lending has a great idea on how you can pass the time until the warmer weather arrives: gardening!
Not only does gardening offer a great way to destress after a long workday or workweek, but it can also provide great curb appeal for your home, which is important to have when you put your home on the market.
Our team at Journey Home Lending has some gardening tips to help you get started on your spring garden. Read on!
Spring Is (Almost) in the Air
Even while the days don’t quite feel like spring yet, you can still get ready:
First, you want to make sure any bulbs or tubers you have been storing are not currently rotting or drying out. To check, you first want to squeeze the bulb to make sure it is not mushy. If it is, the bulb is no longer good to use. In addition, if the bulb is brittle when squeezed, it is most likely dried out and is no longer good to use.
Second, the winter season can certainly bring chilly temperatures to our area. Check to see if any of the cacti in your yard have been damaged by frost this winter season. If so, trim off any of the damage caused by frost so that you can start fresh this spring.
When it comes to fruit trees in your yard, you want to check them for aphids and fertilize them, as needed.
Finally, when it comes to planting for the spring season, you can go ahead and plant perennials, including
- Black-eyed Susans
Ornamental grasses like pampas grass and deer grass can also now be planted. But be prepared to cover these bulbs and grasses if a cold snap is expected.
