March is an excellent time to plan your garden and flowerbeds.  If you lack in-ground gardening space, plan an edible container garden with radishes, carrots, lettuce, and tomatoes (during the warm season). Other items to plant this month include:

mulching around bushesMulching and fertilizing are tasks to be undertaken at this time of year. mulch your borders, as long as the soil is wet. Mulch acts as a barrier against weeds, can provide nutrients, keeps the soil moist and insulates roots from the cold. Before you start, thoroughly weed the bed and have sufficient mulching material – this could be leaves, compost, manure, or bark chippings. Always leave a gap around the stem of plants. Apply your first application of lawn fertilizer.  We recommend Turf-Tone from Espoma as an excellent organic option. Fertilize rhododendrons, camellias, and azaleas with an acid-type fertilizer.

Pruning in March is a good habit to adopt as well. Prune your roses by cutting out dead, damaged, or crossing canes. Trim winter-flowering shrubs and vines after bloom. Most deciduous trees should be pruned during the late dormant season, February through March. Spring into action to prepare your garden and outdoor spaces to avoid the March gardening madness!
