Well February sure felt like spring, and I don’t know about you but it makes me excited to get back in the garden! Looks like mild temperatures are in the forecast for March as well. While spring isn’t here officially until the 20th and while a late snowstorm is always a possibility, there are still things we can do in the garden to prepare for the growing season.
If you didn’t do it last month, make sure to prune your fruit trees and shrubs – you’ll want to get this done before things start budding out. There’s also still time to spray your trees and shrubs with dormant oil to tackle any bugs that have been overwintering in them. Have a look around your yard and garden for weeds that might be starting to pop up – try to pull them while they’re small and before they really start to take hold. Make sure you use a pre-emergent now too if you didn’t do so in February.
March is also an exciting time in the garden because it’s very possible you might be able to start planting. Once the soil is workable, you can start planting your favorite cool-season crops straight in the ground. Think carrots, peas, lettuce, cabbage, onions, and more! Make sure to amend all of your garden beds with some compost or fertilizer to give your plants the extra boost they need to grow strong and healthy.
