March; Spring is nearly officially here!

Hey there fellow garden enthusiasts! Spring is nearly upon us and it's time to get our hands dirty in the garden. Here are some tips for gardening in March and the rest of the spring season in the UK:

  1. Prune shrubs and trees: Now is a great time to give your shrubs and trees a haircut! Removing dead or damaged branches and shaping the plant will give it a fresh start for the new season.

  2. Plant new shrubs and trees: If you've been thinking about adding some new greenery to your garden, March is the perfect time to do it. The soil is starting to warm up, and your new plants will thank you for getting them in the ground early.

  3. Prepare the soil: For those of you who plan on growing vegetables or flowers this spring, make sure you give your soil a little TLC by adding compost or well-rotted manure. This will help to give your plants the nutrients they need to thrive.

  4. Plant early vegetables: If you're eager to start seeing some results in your garden, you can plant early vegetables like peas, broad beans, and early potatoes in March. Just be sure to protect them from any late frosts by covering them with fleece or cloths.

  5. Divide and replant perennials: If you've noticed that your perennials are looking a bit overcrowded, it might be time to divide and replant them. This will help them to grow better and keep your garden looking fresh and tidy.

  6. Cut back ornamental grasses: If you have ornamental grasses in your garden, it's time to give them a trim. Cutting back the old growth will encourage new growth and keep your garden looking its best.

  7. Clean and sharpen tools: Before you dive into your gardening, take some time to give your tools a little love. Cleaning and sharpening them will make them more effective and prolong their lifespan.

  8. Watch out for pests and diseases: Keep an eye out for any pesky pests or diseases that could harm your garden. Early intervention can make all the difference in preventing any serious damage.

By following these tips, you'll be well on your way to a beautiful and healthy garden this spring. Happy gardening!
