In the spring you shoulddo the most important activities in the garden, so that it could delight you all the year.
April and May are known for the brightest holidays in the Christian calendar, Easter and St. George’s day and with very much work in the garden, too. These are the most beautiful months when everything around you is filled with life. In April, the fruit trees are already blooming and you should take care to fight the vermin. The typical rainfall this spring provoked an impetuous growth of the lawns and along with that of many weeds. It is very important to prevent the capturing of the flowers and shrubs from weeds. You should regularly earth up and nourish the plants with an organic fertilizer. You should also cut all the dry winter twigs of the roses to free space for the young shoots.
At the end of April lilac bushes, Spiraea, irises, carnations, California poppies, calendula, and geranium are beginning to bloom.
Then the air in the garden is filled with unique aromas and flavors and in sunny weather bees fly from flower to flower, and here is the moment to note that it is unacceptable to spray in this period with pesticides that kill the bees in large numbers.
In the vegetable garden you should take care to control the weed growth, and in the southern parts of the country, tomatoes and cucumbers can be now sowed outdoors if the soil temperature has reached 12 degrees. To enjoy a beautiful lawn is necessary to regularly mow the grass, this should happen at least once every 10 days in wet period. You shouldn’t allow lawn to grow too much, because it impedes mowing when you should do it more often. It’s nice to leave the grass clippings on the lawn because it rots and becomes bio fertilizer that feeds naturally the lawn.
