Recommended Tasks and Hints for March 2021

  • Lift and divide overgrown clumps of perennials. Lift each clump with a fork, insert 2 forks back to back and prise the clump apart. Smaller pieces can be pulled apart by hand.

  • Apply Blood Fish and Bone to all borders and rake in.

  • Sow hardy vegetables such as spring onions, beetroot, lettuce and spinach. Sow in modular trays indoors and plant out when big enough to handle.

  • Clean Greenhouse glass. Clean the glass inside and out to increase light levels for your plants, especially important early in the year when light levels are low.

  • Cut lawn edges with a half moon spade - your garden will look instanltly neater.

  • Mulch bare soil. Add organic matter to improve your soil by simply spreading it on the surface in a layer 3-5 cm deep. The worms will work it into the soil for you.

  • Turn your compost heap to speed up rotting.

  • Sow hardy annuals such as scabious, calendula and nigella.
