2. Time for Typical Summer Vegetables

As long as the soil isn’t too waterlogged and soggy, early sowing may be made by slightly warming the soil before sowing by using cloches to ensure better seed germination results. The warm and dry soil characteristic of mid-March is suitable for sowing beetroot, artichoke, brussels sprouts, carrot, cabbage, lettuce, parsley, spinach, radish and broad bean If you have a soft spot for celery, sow the seeds in pots and place them in the greenhouse so that you have plants ready for outdoor growth by May and June.

3. Prune

March heralds the end of the dormant winter season. This makes it an ideal time for pruning all your trees and shrubs, all with one exception- pines. Allow their new growth to expand and flourish until the young needles turn half of the full size before pruning.

4. Plant Fruit Trees and Shrubs

As the pruning of established shrubs and trees should have been done by now, it’s a fairly accurate time for planting fruits. Plant apple and cherry trees in a sunny yet sheltered spot, and carry out late plantings of soft, succulent fruits such as raspberry, gooseberry, and strawberry.

5. Plant Bulbs

This is the time when early flowering bulbs like caladiums, dahlias, crocus and hyacinth should be taken out of storage for leaving the foliage to break dormancy naturally. Plant tender bulbs of begonia tubers in a pot containing moist compost, covering only the top. The warm, sunny days help stimulate new growth and lead to fuller plants by the time summer arrives.

6. Install Rain Barrels/Water Butts

You can also consider installing compact little water butts/rain barrels in your garden for collecting the rainfall. In addition to helping the environment, rain water is great for watering ericaceous plants like Camellias, blueberries, and rhododendrons.

7. Eliminate Garden Pests

Eliminating hibernating pests in the early days of March can save you a world of trouble in the upcoming months of summer. It should top the list of things to do in March in the garden.

8. Move Deciduous Shrubs to Right Spot

If you have a poorly placed deciduous shrub or two, now is the best time to move them while they are still dormant. To prevent the roots from drying out, choose a still day. Also, ensure planting the shrubs at the same level as they were in previously in the soil. And don’t forget to water them generously afterward!

9. Groom Your Lawn

Nothing spoils the beauty of a well-maintained garden bed than a worn-out lawn lying alongside. Lawns suffer from the build-up of moss, debris and plant decay in the dreary days of winter, so March is probably the best time to tackle it. If the lawn is already established, proceed to make the first cut of the season; but before proceeding, ensure the grass is not too wet.

10. Pay a Final Tribute to Winter

Then in the mid-to-late March, plant peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, corn, and squash. Nurture young plants with organic fertilizer. Also, pull away from the mulch from shrubs, trees, and perennials to allow the soil to become warm around them. At the end of the month, plant seasonal ornamentals including daisies, marigolds, carnations and petunias.
