Plan your garden for the spring - Edward's Garden Center

Draw a map of your garden to help plan for the spring.

So how to fill all the time and still get your gardening fix? We’ll clue you in on a few things we’ve found.

Take up a winter only hobby
So maybe it’s not the most creative idea, but it just may work. You like gardening and you are good at it, you must have some creativity in your hands. Why not try scrapbooking, knitting, or building? You’ve assembled various things in your garden like raised beds, bird houses and gardening benches. Surely you can think of similar projects to do around your home. Build a small bookshelf or an end table. Refinish an antique.

Plan your garden for the spring
You can’t stop thinking about the garden and that’s okay. Put all those thoughts to good use. Organize your seeds. Think about your garden design last year and how you can change it. As gardeners, we know you can never have too much space for plants. Think about what plants you can move and where you can maximize your space.¬†Drawing a map of your garden will help you visualize without having to go out into the cold.

Pin your gardening heart out
Pinterest is a great way to spend an hour. Proceed with caution, Pinterest is addicting. But it’s a fabulous way to find and organize inspiration for the spring. We have been busy pinning fabulous ideas to share with everyone. Take a look at our Pinterest board and start one of your own.
