Following a few simple steps now will ensure you have healthy blooms throughout the entire season.

  1. Debris cleanup: Take out any dead leaves, twigs, and other debris that's accumulated over the winter. Diseases and pests won't spread this way.
  2. Prepare the soil: Loosen the soil with a garden fork or tiller at least six inches deep. Add compost or other organic matter to improve soil fertility.
  3. Make sure your soil doesn’t have too much acid or too much alkaline by testing the pH level. Your plants need a pH level that’s optimal for growing. This is imporatnt while preparing your garden.

  4. Pruning trees and shrubs: Get rid of any dead, damaged, or diseased branches. Your landscape will look better and grow healthier this way.
  5. Start planting: Plant cold-hardy annuals like pansies and violas as soon as the soil can be worked. Plant warm-season crops like tomatoes and peppers after the last frost date in your area.
  6. Put mulch around your plants to help them retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

  7. Monitor your watering: Make sure you're watering your plants regularly. Keep your roots from getting rotted by overwatering.
  8. Make sure your garden is pest-free. Watch out for aphids and spider mites. Whenever possible, use organic pest control to avoid harming beneficial bugs.
