5 tips for a bloomin’ garden

BT Toronto | posted Thursday, Mar 3rd, 2016

March is here and spring is in the air but before you jump out into the garden our own Frankie Flowers has 5 things you should consider when starting to garden in March!


March is the perfect time to take a look at your outdoor living space and plan how to maximize use of the space and create impactful colour thru designing great gardens including plotting out places to grow your own food:  Frankie says “for larger projects consider hiring a landscape designer or landscape architect, the investment will be worth it and you will have a focused plan to implement over years to come.”



Sharpen lawn mower blades, tune up garden tools by cleaning off dirt and sterilizing blades of pruning shears.  Do some research and find out the best plants or foods to grow for you!Prepare1


Prune off any broken branches or stems and clean up debris around the garden.



A little early to plant but you can plant seeds indoors.  Early March is the time to sow tomatoes indoors.



Take time to enjoy early spring and do not walk on lawns or gardens until they are firm underfoot.  Walking on wet soil increases compaction.  Stay off until the ground is firm underfoot.
