Here in Leicester the beginning of March may feel like as if the garden is only just starting to come back to life after it’s long winter snooze, but this is the month when spring officially arrives across the country.

Here’s what to do outside…

  • Prune back roses and shrubs as necessary and then apply a general fertiliser.
  • Top up or apply mulches around trees, shrubs and climbers.
  • Move any evergreen shrubs that you need to now if they need a new home.
  • Clip back overgrown ivy on walls and fences.
  • Plant out your newly purchased container-grown trees, shrubs and climbers.
  • Get supports for herbaceous perennials in place.
  • Deadhead spring flowering bulbs.
  • Prick out and pot on seedlings as necessary.
  • Lift, divide and replant congested herbaceous perennials.
  • Sow hardy annual flowers including sweet peas.
  • Plant summer-flowering bulbs.
  • Plant out new herbaceous perennials.
  • Clear any debris such as twigs and leaves from the lawn.
  • Make a start mowing the lawn with the blades on a high setting.
  • Mend damaged areas of the lawn and re-seed thin or patchy areas.
  • Lay new turf if required (throughly prepare the site first though!)
