Spring is coming – time to get your garden ready

Spring will be here before your know it and the ground will be thawing. Before you know it spring will be here and you have sprung a little spring in your step.
One of the best signs of spring is turning over your garden and preparing it for plants. In my garden I like to plant cucumbers, tomatoes, wax beans, and green bell peppers. Getting your soil ready for planting is very important too. I will turn the soil over and add in humus and manure and let mix it in, then I let it sit for 2 weeks. Then after the danger of frost ends which happens to be around Mother’s day here in the Northeast. It is time to head out to the Home Depot or local garden nursery to purchase my plants.

I also use natural insect control in all my gardening because I do not like to use harmful chemicals to control insect pests. Instead I use an all natural method by buying praying mantis eggs and introducing them into my garden. With the right conditions the praying mantises hatch and start to protect my garden. They first start off by eating aphids which are very destructive to plants and when they grow large they will eat flies, garden worms, and other destructive garden insects. Finding Praying mantis for sale is very easy as many online garden sites carry these garden predators.
Here’s a little piece of advice that you really should use – take it slow. If you have a huge and beautiful garden idea in mind, you simply have to get yourself two years or so to slowly put together piece by painstaking piece. You’re not an expert. You have not spent years studying the fine art of exterior designing. Take your time to let the design ideas build within. You will end up with something that is kind of timeless and beautiful.
