March Gardening:

March Lawn – Gardening Tips:

Think about lawn care supplies and equipment. Get your mower prepped and ready and begin planning or buying ahead for any fertilizer, sod or other supplies.

 Bark-on-tree

AFTER WINTER ASSESSMENT

Be sure to check your plants for signs of rodent damage. Look for bark chewed off branches and tree trunks.

Mulch & Wheelbarrow

RAKE IT OUT

Raking out your lawn isn’t just for the fall. If the ground is well dried

after the snow, raking in the spring can help remove old grass matted

by snow mold and any accumulated trash. Raking also stands the

grass upright to allow air and light to reach the soil. This allows the grass

to warm, breathe, and begin to grow.

Tulips

Around the corner

With Spring right around the corner, it’s always helpful to

begin thinking about any landscape care you may need

after the harsh winter.

 

Pansies

Officially Spring

While it’s officially Spring, we’ll still have to wait a bit to see true pops of

color appear. In the meantime, fill your outdoor containers with color.

Plant Spring annuals that can tolerate chilly temps. Pansies, violas,

Dusty Miller and many more are available now.

 

Gracillimus Maiden Grass

CUT BACK...THE GRASSES

Cut back your ornamental grasses like Karl Foerster. After that, they’ll be

standing tall again.

 

Annabelle Hydrangea

PRUNE AWAY

Now is a great time to prune most trees. Consult our store or the local

county extension office for information on your particular variety.

Also, prune back Roses, Spirea, Hydrangeas, and other summer

blooming shrubs to get them shapely for the upcoming Spring season.

CHECK FOR DAMAGE

Be sure to check your plants for signs of rodent damage. In addition, look for bark

chewed off branches and tree trunks.

Techny Arborvitae

Evergreens

Evergreens such as pines, yews, and fir may have been dried out or burned by the winter wind and sun. As a result, their foliage is orange-ish brown right now instead of green.

Most plants will survive after the wear and tear of winter, but others may not. For horticultural advice on how to help your winter injured plants, bring a picture into Breezy Hill’s Garden Center. We have the knowledge and products that your plants need.
