In early spring you should remove applied mulch from the bed before applying new mulch.

This is what you should keep in mind here.

Is there anything more beautiful than the first signs of coming spring?

As early as February, the days are noticeably longer again, the temperatures often rise into double digits and the birds are chirping away.

In the garden, this means that you can slowly remove the winter protection and removed mulch.

A layer of mulch in particular protects vegetable beds from frost, snow and too much moisture in winter.

Just as in the forest a layer of leaves, twigs and other plant remains protects the forest floor from the effects of the weather, this process also works in the garden bed.

Mulching creates optimal soil conditions that are otherwise difficult to create due to too much sun or rain.

As

reports, mulch acts as a kind of protective shield against changing weather conditions.

However, you should always make sure to use material for mulching that is free of pests and diseases.

This is what you should consider in spring:

  • Layers of mulch in the garden bed in particular should be completely removed from March.

    knows that this can accelerate soil warming .

    A warmed soil offers vegetables such as melons or peppers the optimal conditions for rapid growth.

  • You should not remove the mulch too early, as plants may still need the mulch for protection.

    Because only after Ice Saints is the ground frost really overcome.

  • Since vegetable beds generally benefit from a permanent layer of mulch, you should mulch early crops such as kohlrabi, lettuce and cabbage from April onwards.

  • From May onwards you should distribute lawn clippings between and under the perennials and berry bushes.

You can make your own mulch using leftover perennials from pruning or lawn clippings.

You can also easily make mulch yourself from supposed garden waste such as straw, kitchen scraps and herbs.
