Look down at your hand. Is your thumb green? Don’t call an ambulance because spring is here and it’s time to start gardening.
This unusually early spring has a lot of people unprepared garden wise. Some bulbs may have bloomed early. Which is okay the worst that can happen is the leaf tips will be singed; this kind of damage is superficial and doesn’t prevent the actual bulb from later flowering. One can also add loose mulch to protect them from winter burn.
Trying to avoid carrying heavy bags of potting soil? Before planting add organic matter to the soil, such as compost or manure, at a 25% to 75% ratio. This should regenerate the soil while cutting down on back problems.
It also isn’t too late to start some seedlings in pots by the window. To germinate most seeds respond to heat not necessarily direct sunlight. So pick a spot that has consistent warmth. Placement is important too. Your best bet would be a south facing window where your future plant can bask in the sun for the long as possible each day. If a south facing window isn’t an option try moving the plants from east to west facing windows throughout the day to follow the sun.
