Flower Garden in Spring


Spring is a great time to plant flowers and they will be ready to bloom this summer!

Why not to plant in the winter.

As you may have noticed, there are a lot of reasons why it’s not a good idea to plant in the winter. The first and most obvious is that it’s too cold for plant growth. The second is that it’s too wet for plant growth. The third is that it’s too windy for plant growth. The fourth is that it’s too dark for plant growth (and yes, plants need light to grow). And the fifth reason has nothing to do with climate or weather; rather, if you’re like me and tend to procrastinate on important tasks until the last minute, then by all means wait until springtime when everything has already been done!

When to plant in the spring.

The best time to plant your garden is in the spring, when the soil has a lot of moisture and nutrients. This means that you should be able to get more out of your plants with less work.

However, this isn’t true everywhere. In some areas it might be better to plant in the fall because they have colder temperatures during wintertime and could kill off any plants that were planted earlier than this period of time.

What you need for your spring garden.

  • trowel
  • shovel
  • rake
  • watering can and a wheelbarrow, if you want. You don’t need one, but they’re pretty handy. Also, it’s easy to get lazy when you have a wheelbarrow available and start just dumping dirt into it instead of taking the time to move dirt from place to place with a shovel—but I digress…
  • hose and attachments that’ll let you water your garden from above (like a spray bottle or wand), as well as underneath (with an attachment for your hose).

How to prepare your garden in the spring time.

Once you’ve chosen your garden location and prepared the soil, it’s time to get planting! If you’re growing flowers from seeds, start them indoors in a seed flat or pot. Once they’re up and growing, transplant them into the garden as soon as possible.

If you are planting from seedlings or plants instead of starting from seed yourself, dig holes twice as wide and deep than the plant’s root ball. Set bulbs on their sides so that their necks face upward (like a rocket). For other plants such as perennials and trees that have been purchased from a nursery or garden center, remove any packaging material carefully so that not too much dirt gets mixed up with it. Water deeply after planting; water stress can inhibit growth in young plants. Finally, add mulch around each plant to keep weeds at bay while protecting roots from being disturbed by rainwater runoff during storms later on in springtime when there may be heavy rainfall events occurring frequently due to global climate change!

What to avoid when planting in the spring time.

  • Don’t plant in the spring if you don’t have a place to put them. If you don’t have space for your flowers, then wait until fall or next year and get some larger pots. You can always move them if you find yourself with more room later on.
  • Don’t plant in the spring if you don’t have enough time to water them every day. Flowers need a lot of water because they are growing so fast right now and will wilt quickly without it!
  • Don’t plant in the spring if you don’t have enough time to care for them throughout their lifespan (which may be only one season—depending on what kind of flower).

How to water your spring plants.

  • Watering is important, especially in the spring.
  • Too much watering can drown the plant and not enough watering can cause its health to decline.
  • The roots of your plant need to be kept moist for it to grow well and be happy as well. This also helps keep diseases away from them as well!
