Gardening in the Months of Spring

As the warmer weather approaches and we find outselves leaving the house without a wool cap and gloves, here are some March gardening tips for Mid-Atlantic gardeners.  Even on this rainy day you can start making plans for your March garden work, incuding bulb planting.  Pictured are Narcissus bulbs I’m preparing to plant.

* Once the soil warms and dries plant summer bulbs

 * Hardy annuals can go out even if we’re expect another frost 

 * Plant shrubs when the ground warms — it’s a good time to transplant trees and shrubs that are currently in your landscape

 * Apply fertilizer to woody plants even though they are still dormant * Prune roses before the buds break

 * Prune broken branches from trees and shrubs
