March Tips & Tasks

Grass seedlings

  • Late winter-early spring is considered the second-best time to seed your lawn make repairs, or cover bare areas. The best time is late August through mid-October. Seeding should be completed by late April.
  • Begin to fertilize houseplants again. The increase in natural light will prompt them to grow.
  • This is a good time to repot and divide houseplants. Use lightweight, well-drained soilless potting mixes that contain ingredients such as peat moss, vermiculite, and perlite.
  • Now is a good time to prune roses. Roses typically experience some winter kill. To determine whether or not a branch is alive, simply scrape the bark with a sharp knife and look for green tissue. If it is brown, prune off the cane.
