Are you a gardener? If so, you might want to consider getting a pair of ducks. Why? Because ducks love to eat bugs and can keep your mature garden close to pest free all-the-while fertilizing the plants with the manure they produce. One word of caution: ducks LOVE to eat strawberries and lettuce, so keep those protected.
Whether or not you choose to use ducks in your garden, there are some essentials to attend to each season. First, you have to prepare your garden spaces for plants. That means pulling early weeds, mixing in compost, and repairing any damage to planters, pots, and beds.
Next, now is the perfect time for dividing perennials. If your summer and fall blooming perennials have gotten too big for their spaces, dig them up, divide them, and replant. For early-blooming perennials, wait to dig and separate until after they have bloomed.
