Seasonal Ideas & Information for March

The following are a list of activities to consider for your March gardening:
  • Vegetables & Herbs - Tomatoes....tomatoes....tomatoes!  We have all of your favorites, including heirloom tomatoes and more.  We are also fully stocked with beautiful vegetable and herb plants.  Have you ever grown spaghetti squash?  Give it a try!

  • Fruits & Nuts  Plant a container grown fruit tree or other edible.  Fruit trees need lots of sunlight, so choose an area with at least six hours of sun.  Stop applications of dormant oil when blooms appear.  Also avoid insecticides during bloom to prevent needless destruction of honeybees and other important pollinators. Stop in and shop our citrus, avocado, olive, pomegranate, and more.

  • Perennials & Annuals -It is time to plant warm-season annuals and perennials grown as annuals.  Mix an inch of compost into the soil prior to planting.  Water them in with a dilute fertilizer solution after planting and repeat fertilization a week later to promote fast early growth.

  • Trees, Shrubs & Vines 
    Fertilize trees, shrubs and vines that were planted in the fall and winter.  Blooming trees are adding color to the landscape this month.  Stop in and let us help you select one for your landscape.  The sooner you plant, the more time you'll provide the roots to become established before the heat of summer sets in.
    Crape Myrtle

  • Lawns  Lawns are greening up this month and winter weeds are growing as well.  When your lawn has grown enough to mow it twice, it is time to fertilize. Mowing weeds doesn't count.  Your options for weed control are to: 1)ignore them and keep them mowed low,  2) hand-pull if there are not too many or the area is not too large, or 3) spot treat with a post-emergence organic weed killer.  The best long-term solution is to mow, water and fertilize properly to build a dense, healthy turf that chokes out most of its weed competition.   If your lawn is continually thin and weak, you will find weeds to be an ongoing problem because wherever the sunlight hits the soil, nature plants a weed. Just remember, the best weed control is a dense lawn.
