Spring is officially here, signalling the start of the planting season and the reemergence of our favourite native species. With a chance of frost still possible, here are a few ways you can protect your garden.
As you start planning what vegetables and flowers to plant at home or at the cottage, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, recommends avoiding relocating plants from your home to your cottage garden and vice versa, this can prevent the introduction or spread of invasive species.
Another consideration to keep in mind before you start churning the soil and laying mulch is the surrounding wildlife. Wildlife-friendly gardening can attract all kinds of fauna to your special oasis. To maximize your chances of spotting some of your favourite insects and critters, you can get your garden certified by the Canadian Wildlife Federation by following their list of dos and don’ts.
