Top Gardening Tips for early Spring

- Plan your garden: With careful observation decide how you want your garden layout to be. Consider not just how much space you have but how much time you have to manage your garden. Observe the drainage, how much sun the garden will get at different times of the day and what your overall garden objectives are- would you like to harvest your own food, have plants that attract birds & butterflies or a space for the kids to play?. Having a professional landscape design drawn up can ultimately save you a lot of money in the long run (by choosing the correct plant varieties for their right positions). 

- Start weeding: Now that its warm enough to return outdoors its a good time to address the weeds (& a nice form of meditation too!). If this is not your ideal activity call in our Garden Maintenance team to help!. 

- Fertilise your garden: With warmer days and more rain it is the perfect time to add manures and compost to your garden. Start getting those beds ready for Spring planting with a good feed of Blood & Bone, sheep or cow manures and dig them through with your pitch fork. Now is the time to start turning your compost piles (or creating a new worm farm, compost or small scale bokashi bucket system) to assist the feeding regime throughout Spring. 

- Choose your seeds and plants. Consider plants that grow well in our climate and meet your design objectives. Consider all the visitors to your garden (the birds & bees) when planning your garden. In a few weeks it will be the perfect time to plant out your Melbourne Spring Garden to have it thriving over the warmer months.

Spring is the time to plan for summer by trimming, cleaning and fixing plants. Spring season is regarded as the busiest time for the gardeners. As plants burst into life, feeding them is the top priority. Use organic fertilisers that improve the soil as well as provide nutrients. Apply lawn fertiliser towards the end of the month, ideally timed with rain. Use soluble fertiliser on bulbs as they finish flowering and on newly planted seedlings. The beds you replenished last month with compost and manures are now ready for planting with summer vegies. Practise crop rotation to reduce the build-up of pests and diseases.
