Garden and Gardener's tips of the month - March

By the middle of the month usually we start to see signs of spring. Despite being the wettest winter on record, our weather has been quite mild and frequently, increasing chances of having sunny days provide an opportunity for a range of gardening tasks to be done. If the ground is not still waterlogged, it is time to get busy preparing seed beds, sowing seed, cutting back winter shrubs and generally tidying up around the garden.

Top 10 jobs this month

1, Cut back Salix (willow) and Cornus (dogwood) that has been left over winter to provide us with colourful stems.
2, Any overgrown clumps of perennials plants need to be lifted, then divided to increase your stocks and tidy borders
3, plant summer flowering bulbs.
4, Protect any new shoots from winter starved slugs
5, Sure sign of spring coming is the way weeds leap ahead. Deal with them now to reduce the problem later. Remember most herbicides are most effective when temperature is above 8C.
6, Replenish any containers or raised beds by top dressing with a good compost.
7, If the weather improves and the lawn dries then a light cut will improve its look. Remember to brush off any worm casts.
8, Check pond filters and uv lights. Most lights require a new bulb every season. Getting them ready now will ensure your pond is tip top for when the fish start feeding. Do not attempt to feed if the water temperature is below 10C.
9, On warm days open vents and windows in greenhouses and any conservatory containing plants. 10, As the weather improves and soil warms prepare seed beds for spring plantings.
