Help Your Spring Garden Plants Grow With PCHSearch&Win

No matter the temperature outside, once the calendar hits March 20th, my thoughts become consumed with my spring garden plants.  What spring plants are growing in your neck of the woods? Here in my Long Island garden, the only flowers that have been brave enough to pop open so far during this cold spring are the crocuses.

My friend (and fellow PCH employee), Nick S., captured this beautiful shot of a crocus in his garden.

Spring Garden Plants

If you planted any spring bulbs, I’m sure you’re eagerly waiting for them to bloom. I’m looking forward to the arrival of my hyacinths and daffodils.  If you didn’t plant any spring bulbs, there’s always next year! PCHSearch&Win can help you discover the spring bulbs that will bloom the best in your area of the country and the best time to plant them. In most regions, you would need to get your spring bulbs in the ground (along with some bulb food) in October or November before the ground freezes.

While Spring is a great time to enjoy your spring garden plants, there’s a lot of work to be done in the garden to prepare for the rest of the season.

It’s important to prepare your flowerbeds. The first step is to remove all the debris that has accumulated throughout the winter while being careful not to disturb any of the shoots that are growing. Pull out any grass or weeds that may have creeped in.  Then, mix in some compost or organic fertilizer to improve your soil quality. Again, why not check PCHSearch&Win to see what works best in the soil for your particular area?

Now, what are you going to plant? Flowers? Vegetables? Both? Here on Long Island, we can plant more hearty flowers like pansies in the early spring. However, we typically wait until May (around Mother’s Day) to plant our most of our vegetables and blooming annuals like impatiens. But, if you live in a warmer climate, you could be putting on your gardening gloves much sooner!

If you’re inspired to get outside and garden but need some tips, visit PCHSearch&Win today. Then, keep your eyes open to take in all the gorgeous blooms the spring and summer have to offer!
