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:
- Summer- and fall-flowering bulbs
- Bare-root and container roses
- Fruit trees
- Ornamental grasses
- Heat-loving perennials
- Ornamental and evergreen trees, shrubs, and vines
- Warm-season annuals
- Permanent ground covers
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!
