Spring Garden Calendar
From pruning to mowing to fertilizing, here's everything you should be doing right now to grow a beautiful garden.
Zones 3-5: March
•Plants: Cut perennials and ornamental grasses to the ground. Trim fall-blooming clematis to 12 inches. Remove mulch from perennial crowns.
•Lawn: Take time to tune up your mower. Sharpen the blade; replace the spark plug, air filter, and oil.
•Landscape: Inspect patios and pathways, and reposition stones if frost has caused them to rise. Check trellises, garden art, and decks, making repairs as needed.
