Prep the garden beds –
Remove winter mulch or if you have composted well, work into the top layer of soil. It’s may also be beneficial to work in some leaf mould or well-rotted manure.
Now is the time to trim up all of your fruit trees if you didn’t already snip them back during winter! Prune BEFORE buds begin to bloom or you can stress your trees and get a tiny crop or very small yielding crop.
