Spring Planting Guide

When the temperature starts to rise, you get the signal to start your own outdoor garden. You can begin spring planting this time, and here’s a guide:

  • Plants require ample doses of sunlight, so your garden should be under the sun’s rays all day.
  • There is no specific rule on where you should place your plants. You can scatter them around or plant them next to each other.
  • Lowest plants should be placed in front and the highest ones should be at the back. This will give you better access to your plants when you’re maintaining them.
  • Allow about a month and a half to two for the plants to grow. There are plants that mature faster than others. Check which varieties you’re getting for your spring planting project.
  • Till the soil and prepare it for the planting. Use fresh manure, compost, or natural fertilizers. The more the organic stuff smells bad, the better it is for your soil. Cultivate for three weeks prior to planting.
  • Plants will wither and die if you put them in a newly cultivated soil because of the fertilizer. That’s why you have to allow three weeks or so of soil preps.
  • Water and turn the soil to properly mix the fertilizer. For pots, use a potting mixer.
  • If you have kids, let them join you in your spring planting to educate them about vegetables and health.
  • Grow tomatoes.
  • Grow some herbs, too. These can be grown anywhere in your yard. Mints shouldn’t be in the garden because they are invasive, so grow them in pots, instead.
  • Grow some lettuce. If growing from seed, do not plant all the seeds at once. Plant seeds around older ones, so they have different points of maturity.
