What to do in your garden in March

In March, the days are noticeably longer, and it’s an opportunity to get out into the garden to enjoy some early spring sunshine. Spring is here, and it’s time to get busy in the garden again.

It’s a prime time to sow vegetables and there are so many options to choose from

Hoe all bare soil before the first weed seeds appear. Remove any larger weeds by hand.

Mulch hungry plants with a suitable compost.

Top up decorative wood chip and pebbles or stones.

Repair any garden structures that were damaged over the winter.

Make a bug hotel to attract beneficial insects to your garden. Collect small planks of wood, bricks, pots and tiles for the main structure. Fill the gaps between with natural materials gathered from around the garden, such as twigs, grass, and shingle.

Mon - Sat: 9am to 5pm
