A great garden typically requires a thoughtful preparation. There is an adage that says that the best garden is the one you will plant next year. One of the reasons for the adage is that preparation and experience are key components to successful gardening; gardeners have to control some of the variables in their garden in order to have great success. Consider the countless possibilities that mother nature can throw at the gardener throughout the growing season. The gardener who has the garden bed cleaned and perfectly-fertilized, the soils in perfect balance for the plants to grow and thrive, will fare better when the pests and the weather pose threats to a successful growing season.
That’s one of the reasons why it’s important to talk with your soil professional at Rocky Mountain Compost about your gardening goals, and to develop a plan for proper fertilizing and soil balance. Your professional at Rocky Mountain Compost can make recommendations and provide you with whatever your garden soil needs to bolster its health.
It’s also important to clear out any weeds and dead growth in garden beds. Yes, organic matter is important to a garden, but decomposing plants with disease can pose problems to new plants. It’s also a good idea to get your gardening tools and supplies cleaned and maintained before you plant. If you have seeds that need to be started indoors, now is the time to prepare, and either plant certain varieties or make a plan on when exactly would be the best date on which to start others. The more variables you control the more likely you will achieve gardening success when the growing season begins in full.
