When to Clean Up Your Garden

Spring can be very unpredictable but if you are a gardener, you’ll probably be out in the garden the first second the weather gets warm. But it’s best to wait with cleaning it up until the soil defrosts and starts to dry out a bit.

Walking on the soil while it’s still wet can make it very difficult for plants to grow later due to soil compaction. Until things looosen up, you can just start with taking stock of your tools and cleaning them up.
