Don’t wait until it’s too late; check out this list of things you need to know before you start your 2017 spring gardening season!
It’s late February, and it already feels like St. Louis has made it through the tough of winter. Spring is on the way, signaling the start for preparations. For those with a green thumb, this means getting the gloves, spade, and soil out of the shed to kick off the gardening season.
Here are Quiet Village Landscaping’s three things you should keep in mind before the weather warms up and the sun shines bright!
- Begin Seeding Now. The beginning of spring is the perfect time to get a jump-start on seeding. It might seem like a daunting task, yet starting plants from seed can be surprisingly easy! Consult with our outdoor care experts for advice on how to see sprouts of green in no time.
- Enjoy Early Bloomers. Pansies are one of our favorite early blooming flowers (this year, notice the them early in the spring season). Colorful pansies add early color to landscapes and containers before roses, tulips, or lilies. Early spring also makes for great timing for planting pansies, because these fun flowers thrive best in cooler weather.
- Try Containers Too. St. Louis is notorious for ever-changing weather, so some gardeners may be weary of planting flowers too soon. Container gardens can be a great option to enjoy colorful blooms with the option to move them indoors during a cold-snap or severe storm event.
