CLEAN & REPAIR.
CLEAR & PRUNE.
Get rid of debris that has collected during the winter months, including broken branches and anything that has blown into the area. You can also pull weeds that sprouted up in late fall, but be careful not to disturb early-blooming plants like daffodils and tulips.
PLAN YOUR GARDEN.
START SEEDS INDOORS.
Okay, this is where things get fun. While you’re doing all the clean-up and prep work outdoors, you can start your seedlings indoors. Not all seeds need to be started early — you want to focus on plants that have slower root development. Vegetables that fall into this category include cauliflower, eggplant, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes and peppers, while flowers that can benefit from a head start include things like zinnia and marigold.
