Things to do in March

Plant spring flowering bulbs

Spring flowering bulbs should be planted this month. Prepare the ground to a crumbly texture and plant the bulbs tip up (except for Ranunculus which are planted 'claws' down!) As a rule, bulbs are planted to a depth that is twice their length. Water in well.

Plant garlic bulbs

It's also time to plant garlic bulbs. Split the head of garlic into individual cloves and plant tip up into a well prepared, and well drained, soil. Garlic likes to be planted about 3-5cm deep and 7cm apart. Planting garlic now will allow it to develop root and foliage over the autumn and winter, then nice plump bulbs in late spring/summer.

Tidy up the vegie patch

Remove summer crops that you are no longer harvesting from and rejuvenate the soil with compost and well rotted manure for autumn plantings. Pick up any fruit that has fallen onto the ground under fruit trees to prevent a build up of pests and diseases.
