Time marches on and before you know it, here comes MARCH. According to folklore, in two weeks March will either roar in like a lion, or come in meekly like a lamb. In March comes danger, such as "Beware the Ides of March or strong winds. March is one of the transition months. One season is desperately trying to hold on to its grip on the people, and another is saying "give way, you had your chance now it's my turn."
Here in our Northern Hemisphere we welcome spring but not before old man Winter throws more storms and cold weather our way. Trees, shrubs, and flowers begin to bud out and even on the coldest days there is the promise of the warmth to come. March can be a snowy month. I remember a March when school was met only 2 days a week because every Wednesday there would be a snow storm that kept schools closed the rest of the week, but it would all melt over the weekend.
March is a time for flying kites, taking long walks in the woods before the ticks and snakes come out, and working to prepare the yard and garden for the new season.
March is the time to sow seeds for all warm-season annuals and to set out summer-flowering bulbs. Other March garden tasks include:
- plant fall-blooming bulbs
- plant ball and burlap, container, and bare root fruit trees
- apply dormant spray to fruit trees before buds swell
- Spray apple, peach, and pear trees that have been affected with canker problems
- plant bare-root perennial vegetables
- plant seedlings of cool-weather vegetables
- sow fast growing warm-season vegetables
- sow seeds for frost tolerant perennials
- sow seeds for tender perennials
- plant container and bare-root roses
- plant ball and burlap, container, and bare-root shrubs and vines
- plant summer blooming shrubs and vines
- plant frost tolerant trees
- plant conifers and broad-leaf evergreens
