1. Clean and sharpen all your garden tools. Check that battery and gas powered items are ready to go, and that ample amounts of potting soil, fertilizers, etc have been purchased and set aside.
2. If you are growing annuals or vegetables from seed, mid-March is the time to begin sowing these indoors for planting out after last frost.
3. On days when you just can’t stay inside, begin by raking and cleaning garden beds. Where bulb foliage is emerging, top-dress with a bit of slow-release fertilizer, such as Bulb-tone.
4. Now’s the time to take notes and photos of where you would like to see more spring bulbs planted. When it comes time to order in late summer, it’s hard to remember where the bare spots were!
5. Containers filled with spring color are a fantastic way to brighten an entryway and hurry winter on its way!
