preparing garden for winterNow that Christmas is over and the New Year has begun, you may be thinking about the best way to approach your garden in order to get it ready for the warmer weather and the approach of Spring. Here at Clearance and Clean Up, we see many people after Christmas taking advantage of our garden clearance and rubbish removal Sheffield services, clearing the way for their gardening plans in the New Year.

Although your plants will still be dormant at this time of year, it’s a great time to start planning and preparing your garden for the months ahead. The more you do now, the easier your gardening jobs will be later in the year, so it’s worth braving the cold to get some work in now.

Re-Plant Deciduous Shrubs

Winter is the best time to move and re-plant deciduous shrubs that may be in the wrong place or that you’d like to move, as they are now dormant. When digging out the shrub, make sure you take out quite a wide area around it and as much of the root ball as possible; this will help the plant to get established quickly in its new location.

Order Summer Bulbs and Seeds

Whether you prefer to visit your local garden centre or order online, winter is the perfect time to order summer flowering bulbs and seeds. Choose plants and flowers that can be planted in early spring, such as Lilies, Ranunculus and Gladiolus.

Get Rid of all the Rubbish!

You may have a sack full of garden waste that you’d like to get rid of, the remnants of your old fence, or broken garden furniture laying around your garden. Now is the time to have a good clear out and get rid of all the rubbish, so when the weather does improve, you’ll be able to enjoy your garden. Use a reputable rubbish removal service in Sheffield to help you with this, it saves you lots of time and is a really fast and affordable way to tidy up your garden.

Tidy Up Flower Beds and Boarders

Winter is a good opportunity to have a general tidy up in your garden. You may want to remove leaves and other garden debris from your lawn, flower boarders and pond. Again, using a reliable rubbish removal Sheffield company to take away anything you need to get rid of is a great start.

Clean Greenhouses and Gardening Tools

Before Spring arrives, give your greenhouse a good tidy up and a thorough wash. Sweep the floor, clean the glass, and wash pots and seed trays to prevent disease. Remember to ventilate your greenhouse well after this process so you can be sure that everything has dried off properly.
