Happy gardening!

Happy gardening!

April is nearly here, and your landscape is finally starting to warm up and acclimate to the changing temperatures. Now is the perfect time to start planting vegetable seeds and other varieties of plants. If you’re looking to cultivate a spring garden, discover how with tips from American Native Plants!

Arrange the Space

Decide if you want to arrange your plants in a garden or in planters, and take the time to arrange the space before planting. If you choose to plant in the ground, stagger your seedlings in a zigzag pattern so that they may absorb water and sunshine evenly. If you have extra space, consider mixing flowers and vegetables throughout the garden to establish a beautiful, vibrant outdoor area.

Select the Right Native Plants

Visit American Native Plants, or peruse the online selection, to select the perfect native plants for your garden. Not only do native plants grow easier and will less maintenance than non-native, but they also offer a distinct beauty to your landscape. If you have never used native plants before, consider chatting with a member of our knowledgeable team.

Choose the Perfect Vegetables

April is the best time to start cultivating your herb and vegetable garden, but it’s important to choose the right ones. Beans, beets, cabbage, and carrots are just a few examples of vegetables that you can plant now and enjoy during the early summer.

Plan for the Summer

Gardening requires patiences and maintenance, and it doesn’t stop once the seeds are in the ground. Once you’ve finished your spring planting, start making plans for summer fruits, vegetables, and plants! Consider maintaining your gardening tools to ensure their effectiveness, and pre-order summer plants as soon as you can.
