Top Tips for March

placeholderfiveOne

Plants

 

  • Prune roses, cornus alba, caryopteris, buddleja davidii, winter-flowering jasmine. golden spiraea and hardy fucshia. Hydrangea paniculata and arborescens (Annabelle) should be cut down to 9-12 inches
  • Plant container grown and root-balled hedges and trees 
  • Continue to lift and divide clumps of perennials. Lift and divide large clumps of snowdrops after the flowers have died off but the leaves are still strong
  • Plant roses, shrubs, ornamental trees and perennials
  • Pot up dahlia tubers, lily bulbs and gladioli. Protect from frost. See in store for our selection of summer-flowering bulbs for bees, butterflies and cottage gardens- lots of colour for later in the summer
  • Add some fresh spring bedding to borders and containers

Watering / Garden Care

 

  • Add plant supports as soon as possible for Hydrangeas Annabelle, peonies and climbers
  • Apply a general fertliser to veg beds, shrubs and hedges. Such as Growmore, 6X, Poultry manure and specialsied rose or ericaceous feeds
  • No need to feed ceanothus, cistus, alpines and succulents
  • Mulch Borders. Improve poor soils with soil conditioner, mushroom compost or manure. Mulch rhododendrons, camelias and azaleas with ericaceous compost
  • Start feeding house plants
  • Clear, dig and manure/compost the veg garden. Let weed seeds germinate, then hoe them in
  • Prune climbing, shrub, standard, species and tea roses. Burn waste and / or remove all old leaves from the garden
  • Check tree stakes and standard rose supports. Replace if rotten below ground
  • Feed the birds and clean bird feeders and baths regularly to prevent disease

Thinking Ahead

 

  • Later in the month, sow hardy annuals in situ. Sow half-hardy seeds in the greenhouse
  • Plan ahead for lots of colour in Spring by planting rhododendrons, camellias, azaleas and heathers. They need ericaceous compost
  • Buy seed potatoes ready for chitting
  • Plan your 2017 veg garden and buy seeds, seed-trays and compost

Lawns

 

  • On a dry day give the lawn a first cut with the mower on an high setting
  • Three to four days after cutting apply a weed, feed and moss killer if necessary. Once the moss had died off, start scarifying. If drainage is poor, aerate and top-dress with sharp sand
  • Have the lawn mower serviced
