Experts say spring garden prep is all about the soil

With spring just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about getting your gardens ready for the season.

Brian Keith, operation supervisor at Fellows Riverside Gardens, said now is a good time to begin prepping your outdoor areas. This includes cleaning up garden beds, leaves, sticks and any debris that’s been sitting over winter.

It’s also a good time to start preparing and decompacting soil and mixing in compost, but certain kinds may be better than others.

“Organic compost. A lot of suppliers around here carry what’s called leaf compost, stuff like that. That’s one of the best things you can till into your soil, especially if you are doing a vegetable garden,” Keith said.

He says it’s still too cold to plant outside, but some vegetables can be planted indoors now and transplanted later.
