Garden Jobs for March

By Heather 11 years ago

Hannah’s been busy with her paper potter and above you can see the leek seedlings coming along nicely.

This month’s gardening tips from Hannah are:

  • March is a good time to lift and divide perennial plants.
  • Plant summer flower bulbs in pots in the greenhouse.
  • Prune last year’s growth on summer flowering clematis.
  • Plant early varieties of seed potatoes.
  • You just have time to plant out bare-rooted trees over the next week or so.
  • Protect blossom on peach and nectarine trees from frost and, if in a greenhouse, hand-pollinate with a soft brush.
  • Mulch the base of trees with a layer of garden compost, but avoid the trunks as it could cause the bark to rot.
  • Tidy ponds by clearing up any plant debris on the margins, remove leaves from the water and plant marginals.
  • Sow celery seeds in pots this month and next in the greenhouse.
