What we are doing in the garden this month and what you can do in YOUR garden to GET READY FOR FLOWERS!!!
We are an organic flower farmette located in suburban Boulder. While our farm is small, it is mighty and we pack as many flowers into our little yard (and a few neighbors' yards) as we can. While a gardener's work is never done, here are the tasks we are up to that I felt would most likely overlap with the hobby gardener's 'To-Do List.'
I hope it helps you Get Your Grow On !
April Garden Check List:
Order compost and mulch
Clear leaves out of garden beds
Check on leaf mold, harvest, and refill
Pull back remaining mulch
Pull weeds and errant grass
Cut back perennials
Mark spots for future bulbs
Amend soil with leaf mold and compost
Cover soil with mulch
Clear and refill raised beds and pots with fresh soil
Pot up and pinch large seedlings
Root pinched seedlings and pot up
Feeling a little EXTRA this month? Pot up some dahlias, start some seeds indoors, and build a greenhouse. There is no end to the possibilities (and chores) when you garden! Love the idea of flower farming but real life keeping you from getting your hands dirty?
