Springtime=Gardening TimeGo Back Go Back
Westminster Canterbury Richmond has fifty-five acres of professionally landscaped grounds, so our staff knows a thing or two about gardening! Our horticulturist, Kathleen Pender, shared her spring tips for gardeners.
- Now is the time to prune dead wood and old blooms from perennials
- Clean weeds out of mulch beds and apply pre-emergent to help prevent additional weeds from forming.
- Take a soil test for lawn and mulch bed areas to determine what is needed before applying additional nutrients or fertilizers.
- Only prune flowering plants after they bloom, or you will prune off this year’s blooms.
- Consider space needed for veggies and how much produce you hope to harvest.
- Consider companion plantings, such as planting marigold near tomatoes or garlic near roses.
