Cutting down the dead plant stems too early in the spring will disturb them before they have a chance to emerge. Wait as long as you can to do your spring garden clean up. Ideally, you should wait until the daytime temperatures are consistently above 10 degrees C for at least 7 consecutive days.
Here’s a few tips to start you off for some spring cleaning:
¨ Prune shrubs.
¨ Remove winter mulch—don’t mulch yet!
¨ Brush back leaves on top of plants.
¨ Pull any dead annuals.
¨ Remove dead growth .
¨ Clean up your vegetable beds.
¨ Pull the weeds.
¨ Edge your garden beds.
