Gardener's Guide to March

Here are some things you can do/plant to keep up and improve your spring garden:

  • Get cool-season crops such as spinach, turnips, mustard, beets, carrots, and broccoli into the garden now. Don't wait—soon the weather will be too hot for them.

  • In mid-to late March, plant corn, peppers, squash, tomatoes, and cucumbers.

  • Pull mulch away from perennials, shrubs, and trees to allow the soil to warm around them.

  • Plant carnations, daisies, marigolds, petunias, and snapdragons.

  • Plant peas later in the month or when a week of warm weather is forecasted. Plant them outside in a sunny spot.

  • Plant a new strawberry bed or rejuvenate an old one by replacing about a third of the plants.

  • At the end of the month, fertilize the lawn.
