Tip of the Week: April Showers
Posted on April 03 2017
Hey there all of you Garden of Eden fans out there and welcome to our latest edition of “Tip of the Week,” where we provide all of you some tips and tricks to keep your indoor flowers and outdoor gardens looking spectacular all the year through! This week, we’re giving you some easy tips to prepare for gardening in April’s showers! With the onset of April, we can all expect some heavy and frequent showers every now and then, as our South Jersey region is akin to experience. However, don’t let these spurts get your gardening spirits, as the rain can be your best friend when it comes to gardening—and we’re not just talking about letting it water your plants for you. The rain can be many beneficial to gardeners, especially when it comes to weeding. Right after the rain has stopped, slip on your gloves and head out to the garden for some real easy weeding, as the rain will have loosened the root system in whatever weed you are looking to pluck. On the other hand, the rain can wash away some vital nutrients in the soil. While this may seem like a problem, it can be an easy fix with either some organic mulch or compost. To prevent this in the future, either lay down some mulch or cardboard, as both are great at keeping your soil safe from the torrents of April, while being completely biodegradable. April’s Showers can either be the bane of your gardening existence, or your greatest asset—you decide on how you want it to play out. Armed with these tips, we feel as though you have everything you need to make the most out of whatever weather this coming month throws at you!
