March has quickly come around meaning Spring is on the way! This month we can finally start planting some colour into the garden.

Flower Garden

  • Plant container grown trees, shrubs, climbers and roses
  • Prune and tidy up bush, patio, climbing and ground cover roses
  • Plant and divide perennials
  • Brighten up your pots with pansies, primulas and spring flowering bulbs
  • Move any deciduous trees or shrubs with as large a root-ball as possible before they start into new growth

Kitchen Garden

  • Prepare the soil and then make the first sowings of lettuce, rocket, radishes, spring onions, leeks and early varieties of carrots and peas
  • Plant early crops of potatoes in pots undercover; plant first earlies outdoors towards the end of the month
  • Plant rhubarb, container grown fruit trees and bushes and strawberry plants
  • Sow hardy herbs and plant and divide perennial herbs


  • Keep heating the greenhouse and water sparingly
  • Sow tomatoes, chillies, sweet peppers and half-hardy annuals / bedding plants in a heated propagator
  • Pot up plug plants and young plants as soon as you have purchased them
  • Plant early crops such as summer cabbage and cauliflower in pots

The Lawn

  • Deal with worm casts and molehills
  • Make the first cut if dry enough and continue to mow regularly, gradually reducing the height of the cut
  • Redefine lawn edges
  • Lay turf before the end of the month if you didn’t in the autumn

General Advice

  • Spring clean the garden, fork over the soil in garden and borders, weed and mulch
  • Clean pond filters and pumps and begin to feed fish if weather is warm enough
