A Guide To Your Garden Prep For The 2018 Growing Season


It’s spring and that means gardening season has begun. If you haven’t started planting yet, now is the time! As a gardener, I start planning my garden at least six months in advance. However, there are many things you can do to prep for the upcoming growing season. Here are some tips on how to get your garden ready for the 2018 growing season:

Now that spring is here, you should start thinking about how to plant your garden for the 2018 growing season.

Now that spring is here, you should start thinking about how to plant your garden for the 2018 growing season. There are a few things you can do to get ready in order to ensure a healthy and bountiful harvest. First and foremost, you need to prepare your garden area so you can start planting.

You should also think about what kind of vegetables, fruits and herbs you’re going to be planting this year as well as when they need planted so they have enough time before the first frost date in your area (usually around October). Most vegetable plants need plenty of sun exposure but some require more shade than others if they don’t live up north where it gets colder during those months out there! Once they’re all in their beds or containers which ever one works best for them then it’s important not only staying true with fertilizing them periodically throughout their growing cycles but also keeping their roots moist at all times since water penetration helps prevent fungus attacks on leaves while minimizing shock caused by sudden temperature drops as fall approaches.”

One important thing that you need to do is conduct maintenance on your greenhouse.

One important thing that you need to do is conduct maintenance on your greenhouse.

  • Clean all the plastic windows and frames.
  • Clean the soil.
  • Remove any dead plants, leaves and other debris from inside your greenhouse to help prevent pests from taking over your garden.
  • Clean the floor, walls, ceiling and door of the greenhouse so it’s ready for next year’s growing season!

Clean any equipment you used last season.

The best way to clean your greenhouse is by hosing it down. You can use a pressure washer, but this can damage the plastic or metal framing of your greenhouse. A scrub brush might be another option, though you may have to rent one if you don’t already own one. Finally, you could use a garden hose with a pressure nozzle attachment that has been cleaned after each use (this will ensure no mold or bacteria build up from previous seasons).

Start hardening off and transplanting seedling plants.

If you’ve grown your own seedlings, it’s time to start hardening off. This means they need to be exposed to the elements, without the protection of a greenhouse or cold frame. Start by moving them outside for a few hours each day before gradually increasing their time outdoors over the course of about two weeks. When the temperature is above 60 degrees Fahrenheit and nighttime lows are above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, plants can be transplanted into the ground (or containers).

Be sure to transplant in early morning or late evening, when soil moisture levels are highest and air temperatures are lower than during midday heat waves. Moisten the soil before digging holes for your plants; water should be soaking wet but not muddy or compacted around roots when you plant them in it!

You can rotate and prune bushes and trees which are dormant during this time of the year.

Rotation and pruning are great practices to get in the habit of.

You can do it during this time of the year because your plants are dormant, so there is no risk that you will damage them by working on them too early.

The best time for pruning deciduous trees and shrubs is late winter or early spring before new growth begins in earnest. This practice helps control their size and shape, as well as reduce disease and pest spread and increase fruit production.

Remember to trim whatever plants or trees grew too large to allow them to grow fuller in the coming growing season.
