Preparing Your Garden for Bareroot Deciduous Trees

There is no doubt that winter is here in all its icy glory but, despite the chill, there’s nothing quite like a nice day outside at this time of year when the sun is shining bright. The winter garden does have a simple beauty of its own, notwithstanding all the uncleared soggy refuse from an abundant spring and summer growing period. You may, however, have cleared away all of that spent growth by now but, if you haven’t, there’s no better time to get out there and get it done.

Winter weeds can become a bit of a problem as the growth of everything else in the garden slows down or stops altogether. Lawns in particular can be susceptible to an influx of weeds at this time of year and a general weed and feed should be considered despite it being a sluggish time of year for lawn growth. Maintaining strong roots and a healthy overall lawn will mean an additional feed in late winter will have it taking off once spring arrives.

Now is also a good time to think about planting any bareroot deciduous trees over the next few months. Prepare any planting holes early with a good mix of organic matter like compost and manure that will stimulate microbial activity in the soil and create a welcoming home for any new additions to your garden. Planting a tree or shrub will also mean you’re doing your bit to encourage a flourishing local ecosystem full of life.
