Different plants require different soil nutrients and compositions.

Always ensure your garden is located in a spot that receives enough sunlight.

Soil structure is also a crucial part of preparing your garden for spring.

Adding gypsum to your garden soil improves soil drainage, promoting healthy plant growth.

It also increases earthworms in soil which is great for keeping soil aerated and loose for optimum water retention and drainage properties.

You want to uproot the weeds by the root and stem to ensure they do not regrow.

If you spot a weed growing in spring, do not let it go to seed because those seeds will germinate, perpetuating the problem.
