How to Clean Up Your Garden this Spring
As snow banks melt and the days are warmer, many of us are eager to get outside and kick off a new gardening season with a spring clean-up of the yard. Hard as it may be to resist the urge to head into your garden beds and borders to tidy up, there are many reasons to be patient, especially if you wish to support pollinators and other wildlife.
It is important to wait for several consecutive days with temperatures in the range of 10-15 ˚C, when most pollinators will have left their overwintering sites. Depending on the weather, this may mean waiting until late April/early May before raking up leaves and other plant material or cutting down stems.
