More stuff to do in March!
Ok, so you got your ground fertilized and your skeletons out of the garden? Great! Next please.
An NB - remember to water any potted bulbs. They are reaching for the sky right now, happy to see the light after a long dark winter and they are thirsty so don't forget to give them a drink. Try to brave the cold winds and pop outside to give them a bit of care and they will pay you back making bright spots of colour where you need them most.
March, also the month to......prune the roses. Remove a percentage of the old wood where you can promote new wood (a healthy vigorous plant is less susceptible to disease). And if you have a forsythia, remove a third of the flowering wood to encourage an arching growth. Don't prune it in a square, I find that a bit unnatural. Here's a really beautifully natural one.
Allez - to work!
