March Stuff To Do
As you are receiving this email , the Washington DC area is cleaning up from yet another snow storm. Heads are gonna roll Mother Nature. We are tired of this and we have gardening tasks to get done!
Here are some things to put on your To Do List for March:    
  • Early season weeds will start to grow (chickweed, henbit, knotweed). Pull them while they are young and small. The good news is that they will burn off quickly when it gets hot. Here is a link to help you identify these weeds: Weed Identifier
  • It is a good time to divide and transplant perennials before they get too leafy. Plants such as hostas, daylilies and astilbe all do well by division. 
  • Spring clean up time. Clean out the garden beds of leaves and debris. Put a nice shovel edge on them. And yes, it is not too early to put down a layer of mulch. 
  • Prune roses just before they start to bud out. Here is a link to David Austin Roses’ instructions on how to do this: Rose Pruning Instructions
  • Attend to your indoor plants too. They’ve just come through a long winter and need a bit of fertilizer. Repot those that are root bound. Avoid overwatering as weakened plants are more readily subject to disease and root rot. 
  • Plant early spring vegetables and flowers. These include spinach, lettuces, peas, and leeks as well as sweet peas. 
  • Get out and enjoy the start of spring!
