No matter what month, no matter what time of year – there is always something to do in the garden. We have listed some important gardening tips for you in March:
Splendor of colors from the bag
Colors carry magic and atmosphere in home and garden – especially when they are presented in harmony and harmony with one another. Who doesn’t dream of an elegant, colorful garden that appears to be glowing from within on mild summer nights, or of the quiet poetry of a blue-violet flower bed in which the time between day and night is hidden ?! Nowadays this can be done quickly and in a very simple way. Because many flower shops, nurseries and even on the Internet offer annual summer flowers in pre-sorted color mixtures, which now bloom intoxicatingly from June to September. You can find summer flower compositions that can be described with beautiful, eloquent adjectives, such as dreamlike, feminine, snow-white and so on.
Fresh air in the garden thanks to the potted plants
The effect of protective devices is reversed under the warming summer rays. While they kept out the cold in winter, they now prevent heat from penetrating to the ground. It is therefore advisable to remove the covers from beds and trees. In this way, pointed bulb flowers can also grow better. The potted plants should be taken out of their winter quarters and cleaned out. If necessary, they should be repotted in new substrate, placed in a bright, protected location and watered. At night, the sensitive, not frost-hardy potted plants such as laurel, camellia or olive should be covered while they get used to the outdoors again.
Cut summer flowering shrubs
Climbing roses can sprout too early or even dry up in the increasingly strong spring sun. It is therefore advisable to remove their protection. In addition, they are cut in March to remove diseased, weak and overly tight shoots.
Protect onion flowers
Spring flowers that are cautiously peeping out of the ground in the lawn should be marked as springtime with sticks and ribbons, balls or windmills so as not to trample them.
Sow in the bed
Vegetable and herb beds can now be worked as soon as the soil has dried a little and no longer smears. Then the first varieties are sown outdoors.
Plant new trees
The end of March is the best time to plant all fruit and ornamental trees. Before planting, the soil is loosened and all root weeds are removed.
