Gardening Jobs for March

  • March is all about preparation. Now is the time to weed, feed and mulch. Don’t forget the containers which will benefit from removing the top 1” or so and replacing with fresh compost.
  • When preparing the vegetable beds, remove all weeds and fork in plenty of compost. Cover the soil with sheets of black plastic to keep it dry, warm and ready for planting.
  • Rhubarb can be covered with a bucket to force it on.
  • Bare root roses can be planted now, and already established plants can be pruned and given a feed.
  • Plant summer flowering bulbs. And in the vegetable patch you can plant shallots, onion sets and early potatoes.
  • Trim winter-flowering heathers as the flowers fade. This will prevent the plants from becoming leggy and bare.
  • Seeds and plug plants can be started in the greenhouse. If your greenhouse is heated you can sow tomatoes for an early crop.
  • Check House plants to see if they are potbound and repot if necessary.
  • Daffodils can be deadheaded once they start to fade. Do not cut the foliage, let it die back naturally.
  • If your patio or path is slimy, clean with a broom or better still, a pressure washer.
  • For climbers, it is best to get supports in early, so that the plants grow up through them, covering them discreetly. Adding supports afterwards is difficult and results in the stems lacking much needed ventilation.
