Getting Your Garden Ready for Planting Season

Before starting the process of planting your garden, there are some preliminary steps you should take to be fully prepared for a successful gardening season.

Prepping your garden

A key factor to having a successful garden is cleanliness and organization. Getting all of your planting materials together such as gardening tools, pots, and any other potential equipment, and giving them a thorough cleaning before planting can reduce the chances of rust to form on surfaces. Dreumex Ultra Hand and Tool Scrubber Wipes are essential to the cleaning process as they do not require any rinsing after use and remove tough soils, such a dirt and grime that may have been left on surfaces.

Also ensure that you tune-up your gas-powered equipment by sharpening and cleaning blades, top off the oil, drain and replace fuel, and turning on your equipment to make sure everything is still working properly. Dreumex Hand and Tool Wipes are convenient to have nearby when checking oil and fuels because they easily remove tough soils from surfaces and hands. These wipes are conditioned with Glycerin, Aloe Vera, and Vitamin E which prevent irritation and drying in your hands.

When to being planting

Figuring out when to start the planting process depends on where you live, however, once spring has officially sprung, you can start to introduce your crops to the garden bed. The first thing that you want to know is what kind of weather conditions that your crops can handle, some plants can handle cooler spring weather or light freezing, whereas others may not be able to handle the frigid temperatures. For most crops, you should start planting seeds indoors about six to eight weeks before the last spring frost date. Some crops that can handle the chillier weather include:

  • Beans
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Kale
  • Lettuce
  • Peas
  • Spinach

Make sure you research the temperature tolerance of your crops before planting them into the ground. Most cold weather food crops tend to germinate in soil as cold as 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

Post planting procedure

Once you have planted all of your crops into your garden, it is crucial that you give your gardening tools another cleaning before moving to storage. The best place to store your gardening equipment is somewhere that is dry such as your garage, mudroom, or storage shed. Wiping down all of your used tools and equipment will benefit you in the long run, preventing any potential damage and maintaining the overall cleanliness and lifespan of your supplies.
