Spring is on its way! Time for a spring cleaning for your garden

The days are slowly getting longer, the sun is starting to shine again and you are starting to hear the chirping of birds everywhere. One thing is clear: spring is just around the corner! And of course that means it’s time to bring your garden out of hibernation and get it ready for the new season. Are you a true garden lover? Then this is the perfect time to start a thorough spring cleaning and do your shopping at De Boet Garden Center. Below you will find useful tips to get your garden ready for spring!

Getting started with pruning

In early spring, it is important to start pruning plants and shrubs. This is the time to remove dead and damaged branches, making room for new growth. Look carefully at each type of plant, as not all plants should be pruned at the same time.


Giving your garden a spring makeover doesn’t just involve the greenery in your garden. Your furniture deserves an overhaul, too! Is your garden furniture still in a good condition? Then clean them thoroughly and, in the case of wooden furniture, repaint them. Is your furniture in need of replacement? Then it might be fun to hunt for a nice new garden set. Combine it with a nicely landscaped patio or a pond with accessories, such as a garden water ornament, for a great end result!

Garden maintenance and care

Regular maintenance makes the difference between a garden that looks reasonable and one that really shines. Consider cutting the grass, weeding the weeds and watering the plants if it hasn’t rained in a while. But the soil also needs care.

Soil and fertilization

Healthy soil is the foundation for a thriving garden. Start by removing weeds and loosening the soil. This ensures good drainage and aeration of the soil. Add compost to enrich the soil. Use organic fertilizers that gradually release nutrients. This helps plants grow strong and healthy and is also better for the environment.

Spring brings new life and energy, not only in nature, but also in ourselves. By spending time and attention on your garden now, you can enjoy a beautiful, healthy and colorful outdoor space all spring and summer long. Whether you have a small balcony or a large backyard, everyone can celebrate spring in the garden. So put on those gardening gloves and get to work!
