1. Prepare Your Soil

Remove all the weeds and indulge in a wee bit of forking to maintain a tidy and uniform surface. The soil is workable in the spring, so it’s a good idea to add a few centimeters of compost layer or well-rotted manure into your topsoil to prepare it for the upcoming growing season. Cover the newly prepared soil with multiple sheets of black plastic to keep it warmer and drier in preparation for planting of summer-special seeds.

2. Plant Bulbs

This is the time when early flowering bulbs like caladiums, dahlias, crocus and hyacinth should be taken out of storage for leaving the foliage to break dormancy naturally. Plant tender bulbs of begonia tubers in a pot containing moist compost, covering only the top. These pots should be ideally kept in well-lit spots and occasionally watered whenever the compost dries out. As soon as the shoots elongate, they should be potted individually. You can also start potting up stored geraniums. The warm, sunny days help stimulate new growth and lead to fuller plants by the time summer arrives.
