Garden Tips

March In the Garden, To-Do List

  • Weed, and clean-up diseased yard debris and leaves in the garden. With all of our recent rain and storms this may be a larger task than normal!
  • Continue to cover tender plants when frosts are forecasted.
  • Before you start tilling or digging in your garden, make sure the soil is dry enough to crumble in your hand. If it is too wet, wait for it to dry out.
  • Mulch garden beds 2” – 3” thick with an organic mulch like G&B Organics Soil Building Conditioner. Mulch adds nutrients to your native soil to encourage strong root development and to conserve moisture in hot months.
  • Remove dead, diseased and damaged wood as soon as it is observed.
  • Feed Citrus as soon as weather warms. Young plants need to be fed every 30 days thru October. We suggest Gro-Power Premium Citrus & Avocado Food and  G&B Organics Citrus & Fruit Tree Fertilizer.
  • Watch for Citrus Leaf Minor damage. Do not prune out damage. Citrus Leaf Minors can be controlled by both biological and chemical methods.
  • Prune frost damage on citrus.
  • Feed and finish pruning roses. We suggest G&B Organics Rose & Flower Fertilizer.
  • Divide and transplant summer blooming perennials.
  • Plant Primrose, Pansies and Violas for some cheerful garden color.
  • Rake and aerate lawns, then over-seed.
