What's blooming and what to do in the Garden in March

As March unfolds in the UK, gardens burst into life with an array of vibrant blooms. Daffodils, crocuses, and snowdrops grace the landscape with their cheerful hues, signalling the arrival of spring. Ornamental cherry trees paint the sky with delicate pink blossoms, while primroses carpet the ground in shades of yellow and purple. Meanwhile, in the garden, it's time to prepare for the growing season ahead.

March marks the ideal time for sowing vegetable and flower seeds, as well as planting bare-root roses and shrubs. Tend to your soil by mulching and feeding, and don't forget to tackle any early weeds before they take hold. Prune back winter-flowering shrubs to encourage new growth, and start to divide overcrowded perennials for healthier plants. With the longer days and warmer temperatures, March is a busy but rewarding time in the garden, full of promise and potential.
