Your Gardening Checklist For March

Here's your gardening checklist for March! There's plenty to do in the garden, now spring is approaching fast...

General Garden Maintenance Tasks

  • Your lawn will begin to produce new growth very soon, so keep an eye out and be ready with your lawnmower at hand! We always recommend re-cutting the edges too.
  • Take a little time to replant your indoor pots of bulbs into sparse borders. Be sure to water well and use a liquid feed for the ultimate boost.
  • Prune out branches on trees/shrubs that have been damaged by the winter weather.
  • Don't forget to keep bird feeders topped up- it's not long until the breeding season!



  • Be sure cut your dogwoods, and willows right down to their base to promote a burst of new growth in the new growing season.
  • Pick of the developing seed heads on spring bulbs, but ensure you leave the foliage to die back on its own.
  • Sow wildflower seeds to produce your very own mini meadow!
  • Finish up pruning any roses- do this at the beginning of March, when the plants are still dormant.
  • Tidy up your garden borders, and remove any weeds. Ensure you top this off with some mulch to suppress them from growing back as much as possible.
  • Scatter some fertiliser over your flowerbeds, and around any hedges/shrubs, to encourage further growth during spring.


Now, that's only a few tasks listed! There sure is plenty to do in the garden this month, as we prepare our gardens for the ultimate spring/summer show. 

Who else can't wait to see spring life unveil itself, once again?!
