Welcome to Winter, Spring can't be far behind....
As we get settled into Winter, Holidays are over, and the real world is back.
So, this is when most people typically put the gardens and the outside out of mind!
Which is why this reminder is for all of us who would rather stay warm and rest from the toils of gardening season.
For anyone who wants to think and plan for this new 2019 gardening year there is an opportunity to stay ahead.
We all know that we can ignore the garden needs till bulbs are popping out of the ground, but then it accelerates so fast, normal humans will find it hard to stay ahead, and next thing you know weeds are winning....
A few tips for anyone wanting to stay ahead of needs might be the following:
During Winter, scope out a work list ready for Spring, and see if anything can be done ahead. Some things like pruning etc might be possible, and free up spring work load.
Pre order materials, from seeds, plants, mulch etc...beat the rush!
Arrange any design or planning services. These are all possible now, before the rush. Spring, we all get booked up!
Design takes time, so doing it now, means it is ready for Spring implementation, and no wait time!
Make a list of what you want to achieve in the 2019 garden. Then use it as a guide.
Lastly, as we get close to Spring take-off.....have any help lined up, equipment ready, and start early or as weather allows. Because the early start means weeds get suppressed, or plants get installed and get growing early when conditions are best. Once summer kicks in, starting then to get ahead is always an uphill struggle.
Hope that helps, and Happy planning!
