Adventures in Greenspace!

In the garden in March

By Simon Kavanagh, Mar 1 2015 08:01PM

Spring is almost sprung! Here's a few things Greenspace can help with this month...


- Weeds come back in to growth - deal with them before they get out of hand

- Feed roses with rose feed or a balanced fertiliser as they come into growth

- Protect new spring shoots from slugs

- Plant bare root roses

- Top dress containers with fresh compost

- Lift and divide overgrown clumps of perennials

- Cut back Cornus (dogwood) and Salix (willow) grown for colourful winter stems

- Plant summer-flowering bulbs

- Start feeding fish and using the pond fountain; remove pond heaters

- Plant shallots, onion sets and early potatoes

- Mow the lawn on dry days (if needed)

- Prune Winter Flowering Jasmine (Jasminum nudiflorum) after flowering to encourage new growth for next year's blooms. Cut back the previous years growth to 5cm from the old wood

- Open the greenhouse or conservatory doors and vents on warm days
