This is the month our gardens start to wake up. Frosty nights will still be around, but there’s a lot you can plant this month.
After a long winter, there’s nothing like some garden color to raise the spirits. It’s still the time for pansies, primroses, and potted bulbs, but there are other early flowers to plant this month. Sweet peas, calendulas, dianthus, and snapdragons can be planted now, as well as spring and summer blooming perennials. We also have a selection of summer flowering bulbs including dahlias, lilies, and gladiolus.
Start your victory garden this month! Plant leafy greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, peas, onions, leeks, radishes, carrots and shallots.
Roses are best planted this month, and the best selection of the year is now. It’s also time to prune existing roses.
Bare root berries, grapes, asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries and fruit trees should be planted this month.
March is a great month for planting trees and shrubs. Our garden centers are full of beautiful spring flowering shrubs right now!
Go after slugs this month…every one you get now will help keep the population low. We recommend pet and child safe SLUGGO.
Lawns will appreciate an early feeding this month, as well as an application of lime. If you haven’t already, treat for moss.
If the soil is dry enough, PREPARE your flower and vegetable beds by adding rich compost such as BumperCrop.
