March; planting, sowing and preparing the earth.
Fruit & Veg : Now is the time for shallots, onion sets and potatoes to be planted. Cover any empty veg patches to prevent weeds .
Flowers: sow herbaceous perennials; geranium, astrantia, oriental poppies. Prepare the soil with good drainage to prevent rotting bulbs before you sow your summer ones.
Greenhouse: Prick out and pot on! Give plenty of room for your seedlings when you see new growth and water frequently.
Trees and Shrubs: Good time to plant trees and roses too. Especially where the soil is heavy.
Wildlife: feed the fish in your wildlife pond as they are coming out of winter dormancy. Frog, toad and newt spawn should be appearing as the weather starts to get warmer!
