Maggie's Words of Advice: March



Now is the time to start filling in the backbone of your garden with trees, shrubs and vines.

You can prune your camellias once they are done blooming then be sure to keep them well fed with some Holly Tone.

If you like wonderful tasting strawberries, mid to late March is the ideal time for planting strawberries that you can enjoy throughout spring.

Fertilize the area you’re planting the spring flowering bulbs with Plant tone.

Spray Poison Ivy and Kudzu vines as soon as they appear with Eraser herbicide.

Now is a good time to make sure your house plants are in good condition by repotting and keeping them fertilized.

Make sure that if you are moving houseplants outdoors, to give them some extra room in their new pot. Only go one size larger when repotting.

It’s time to reseed your fescue lawns as the weather starts to warm.

Early March is the time to apply a pre-emergent herbicide, which will control your summer weeds. After pre-emergent, do not reseed or fertilize for another 6 weeks.

Since bluebirds are picky as to where they choose to nest, now is the time to set out your bluebird house, and be sure to have at least one hummingbird feeder to attract hummingbirds to your yard this year.
