Jordan's Top Tips for your March Garden

The Daffodils are starting to bloom and Spring is definitely on its way, which means there is plenty to do in the garden this month.

It’s time to apply feed to your established beds and borders. Ensure the soil is workable and dig a good amount of well-rotted manure in to prepare for the growing season ahead. You could work in a general fertilizer such as Growmore or something more specific, depending on what you are growing. You could also add green waste and a good multi-purpose compost into your vegetable beds to enhance nutrient level and help with drainage.

Mow your lawn if it needs it. Ensure you choose a dry day and your blades are higher than usual.

March is an ideal month to lay new turf. It’s beginning to warm up and is relatively damp which are perfect conditions for the lawn to establish.

Other tasks include:

  • Keep deadheading your winter bedding plants such as Pansies and Polyanthus to encourage more flowers and healthier growth.
  • It will soon be time to start planting your potatoes, broad beans and other early vegetables.
  • Move any deciduous trees or shrubs before it’s too late.
  • Put in place any plant supports you may need before things start to grow rapidly.
  • Prune Roses back to encourage new, healthy, strong growth.
  • Finish cutting back Salix and Cornus.
  • Take all remaining dead foliage from last year’s perennials and grasses.
  • Remove dead Hydrangea heads now to enhance airflow in the centre of the plant and make room for new growth.

Excellent turf and topsoil delivered on time with a call to say they were on their way. Lawn was freshly cut on the day and has taken very quickly.

Wow, our first time visiting and I cannot wait to come back! Beautiful, inspiring surroundings. Products are first class and you can tell the staff who look after the place do it with love. We are so happy with our purchases and very reasonable prices. I’ll make a regular visit now! I haven’t tried the Potting Shed yet but heard wonderful things so will look forward to trying it. So lucky this is local to us. Thank you!
