From the Extension Master Gardener Volunteers:
March is when the gardening year really starts to ramp up in Transylvania County. The longer day length, along with the warming air and soil, triggers plants and insects to wake up from their winter hibernation. While the to-do list is starting to get pretty long, not every item listed needs to be done in your garden. Tackle the tasks that will address past problems first. Once those are complete, move along the list as time and energy allow. Remember, you should pace yourself to get the most benefit from gardening. It is a hobby that is meant to be a relaxing way to spend time in the sunshine, exercise your body and your mind, and appreciate the natural world. Enjoy!
