Preparing the garden for spring

Around the middle of March comes the period when the first rays of spring begin to beckon us outside, and March or April is also the ideal time to prepare the garden or terrace after hibernation for the next season. Read on to find out what such an ordinary garden needs to make you happy the whole following season.

What tool can't you do without?

  • Tools intended for preparing and loosening the soil, for planting trees and seeds - shovel, hoe, rake, planting stakes and others.
  • Tools for cutting and cutting bushes, trees and grass - garden shears, lawn mowers and more.
  • Hoses, watering cans and irrigation systems.
  • Tools suitable for plant care - for example, spades, root or weed pullers and others.
  • Helpers for handling heavy loads - wheelbarrows, garden wheels and carts.
  • Wood storage and handling - folding wood goat, ax, saws, cart for transport and storage.
  • Grass and leaf bags.

Felling and pruning of trees and saplings

From November to the end of March, vegetation rest lasts, when felling and larger cuts of trees and woody plants can be carried out. So, by the end of March, complete all this work, including the cuttings of stone and pith. At the same time, March is an ideal time for planting trees - if you plan to plant new trees, you can go ahead with it.

When caring for trees, don't forget preventive spraying against diseases and pests, especially fruit trees and vines.

Bush care

Pruning bushes is a bit more difficult than pruning trees. Focus mainly on the needs of individual species. For example, flowering shrubs such as marigolds and lilacs should never be pruned before flowering. On the other hand, you can trim other bushes by up to three quarters of their size. The unwritten rule of thumb when pruning shrubs is that you should prune the inside of each shrub, not just the perimeter.

Lawn and flower beds/planters

Lawn care is definitely an important part of the spring routine. To keep your lawn thriving, weed-free and beautifully green, pay it the proper attention. Verticulate after the second to third mowing, which usually occurs in April, when the lawn is growing again and is full of strength. Don't forget to pull out weeds and moss that don't belong in the lawn.

TIP: Spring is also a good time to establish a lawn, which you can do by sowing grass seeds or laying a grass carpet.

Don't forget the flower beds and flower pots, chests! There, too, it is necessary to get rid of any weeds and remove dead leaves and plant parts so that the plants have room for further growth.

Planting vegetables and herbs

It is better to wait until after the last frosts to plant more susceptible herbs (eg thyme and sage). However, you can pre-grow many herbs and vegetables at home and then plant them outdoors when the seedlings are larger. You will also have a higher chance of success that your plants will survive. We offer several tools for pre-growing plants at home in our e-shop.

What to plant in spring?

During March and April, you can start planting fruit trees, raspberries and strawberries.

If you grow roses, be sure to trim them and also sow the lawn where needed.

In spring, all fruit trees can be planted, especially peaches and apricots. The spring months are also the optimal time to sow vegetables and herbs. In the second half of March, you can already start preparing the outdoor beds on which you can grow spinach, early lettuce, peas, root vegetables, spring garlic, dill and more.

You can plant onions already in autumn. But if you prefer to plant in the spring, then it is best to wait until the turn of March and April, when there is no longer a risk of severe ground frosts. You can grow it from pre-grown seedlings that you plant in a box beforehand. Another option is direct sowing of seeds or from seedlings (small bulbs for planting).
