Winter Garden Care + Spring Prep

Spring is near! That means it’s time to start thinking about your garden. Late winter is a good time to start prepping for both flowers and veggies, as well as tidying up after this wet winter. Here are some tips to get things rolling:


  • clean up garden beds by removing dead foliage + weeds
  • trim dead branches leaves from trees + shrubs
  • turn over garden beds and add compost
  • start Allium crops if you haven’t already (e.g. garlic, leeks) and add bulbs for summer blooms
  • plan your vegetable garden and purchase seeds
  • general maintenance including sharpening and oiling gardening tools, cleaning lawn furniture, repairing window boxes and raised beds

For my Greenlakers here are a few of our local garden stores:

Swanson’s Nursery | 9701 15th Ave NW

Greenwood Hardware | 7201 Greenwood Ave N

Ravenna Gardens | 2600 NE University Village Ave


Happy prepping!
