March Gardening

As the weather starts to warm up in March, it's the perfect time to get back into the garden and start preparing for the growing season ahead.

Here is a checklist of essential tasks to tackle in your garden this month:

1. Prune Fruit Trees and Bushes

March is the ideal time to prune fruit trees and bushes before they start to bud. Remove any dead or damaged branches, and shape the tree to encourage healthy growth.

2. Prepare the Soil

Start preparing your soil for planting by adding our Springmix CompostMulti Purpose Compost, Soil Improver or well-rotted Spent Mushroom Compost (horse and chicken manure). This will help improve soil structure and provide essential nutrients for your plants.

3. Sow Seeds Indoors

Get a head start on the growing season by sowing seeds indoors. Tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers can be started indoors in March to be transplanted outside once the weather warms up.

4. Divide Perennials

If you have overcrowded perennial plants, now is the time to divide them. This will help rejuvenate the plants and promote healthy growth.

5. Weed and Mulch Flower Beds

Take the time to weed your flower beds and add a layer of mulch to help suppress weeds and retain moisture in the soil. This will give your plants a head start as they start to grow, whilst also protecting young shoots and roots from a surprise frost! 

6. Start Planting Early Vegetables

You can start planting early vegetables such as peas, radishes, and lettuce in March. These cold-hardy crops will thrive in the cooler temperatures of early Spring.

By following this checklist of tasks for March gardening, you'll be well on your way to a successful growing season ahead. Happy Gardening!
