The weather is so cool now, and that makes it the perfect time for preparing spring flower beds. There are not many times during the growing season when the beds are dormant and easy to work with. Use this time, without the heat, to make your vegetables and flowers look fantastic in the spring.
Preparing Spring Flower Beds – Now is the time to Do this
I just found this great image from Horticulture magazine and Osmocotewith a great video with step by step instructions for preparing spring flower beds.
One of the things that I like to do is make lasagne garden beds in the fall. Just place layers of garden refuse, kitchen scraps, cardboard, paper, covered with hay or stary, over an area of lawn. By the spring time, the bed will be weed free and ready to plant without any tilling needed.
Do you do anything special in the fall to get your beds ready for your spring planting? I’d love to hear your comments on the steps you take in preparing spring flower beds.
