The key to successful spring gardens and lawns is in the weeks leading up to the start of the growing season. Read on for a few simple tricks, tips and suggestions that will help you on your way to creating enviable gardens and lawns!
Spring is commonly known as the ‘golden’ gardening time of year for all green thumbs, with an abundance of plants, vegetables, succulents and lawns start to thrive as the weather warms up.
However, the real secret to a successful Spring garden is preparation in the weeks leading up to the start of the season.
With a few simple tricks and tips and a little help from some Plant Doctor products, you too can have a Spring garden and lawn that will have your neighbours green with envy!
Here at Plant Doctor, we can’t stress enough the importance of planning. It helps to have a mapped-out visualisation of what you want your Spring garden or lawn to look like, whether it be indoor or outdoor.
Take a trip to your local nursery or jump online and search for which plants, vegetables or lawn will suit the climate you live in, as certain plants grow better varying from State to State.
Be sure to look for reliable Spring plants that require as little fuss as possible. After all, gardening should be fun and not a chore!
It always helps to document plants you like the look of by keeping these in a plant journal or on your phone as a record when deciding to purchase.
As the day gets longer and the sun shines brighter, vegetables start to really plump up – providing your home kitchen with a colourful kaleidoscope of delicious healthy vegetables.
To make the most of the season, we recommend you start planting as soon as possible so your seedlings can take root and begin to thrive.
There are several vegetables ideal for planting in Spring across Australia, with some of the below being particularly easy to grow.
Subtropical climates (South-east Queensland and Northern New South Wales)
Tropical climates (North Queensland, Western Australia and Northern Territory)
Dry or outback climates (Central Australia)
Temperate climates (Coastal New South Wales and Sydney)
Cooler climates (Victoria, Melbourne and Tasmania)
When school holidays are on and during weekends, you may find yourselves with a few extra visitors during the break, so why not have a Spring garden to show off.
Spring is a perfect time to go ahead with a wide variety of flowers, fruit trees and hardy plants that will bring some life back to your garden.
While you may be tempted to purchase several of the same plant for continuity, don’t be afraid to mix and match with different flower species for wonderful pops of colour, adding a striking and unique look to your garden.
Now is a great time to talk to one of the experts at your local nursery, who will guide you in making the right choices for your Spring garden design.
Thankfully, Plant Doctor has unveiled its Indoor Plant Nutrition Range just in time for Spring, meaning all indoor green thumbs will be equipped with the very best in plant care for inside the home.
While we love getting out and about during the Spring season, it’s truly rewarding to come home to a lovely garden, both outside and in the home.
Plant Doctor recommends purchasing a number of low-fuss, low-maintenance plants for inside the home, so you can enjoy the outdoors as much as possible!
Succulents and Cacti are a fantastic place to start, depending on the climate you live in.
We are also huge fans of Fiddle Leaf Figs, Rubber Plants and Monstera for plants that are easy to take care of and make an excellent and attractive addition to any home interior.
Plant Doctor's Indoor Plant Nutrition Range has you covered, with several premium products perfect for all interior gardens.
As the Spring season rolls around, nothing beats a weekend of mowing and sitting back on the deck and admiring the beauty of your lawn over a cold drink to two.
When it starts getting warmer, we recommend using Plant Doctor’s Medium Value Bundle to keep your lawn in peak shape and well-prepared for plenty of backyard cricket over Summer.
