Getting Busy in March


Week One

  1. Continue to care for indoor houseplants by cleaning the dead leaves and ice-cube watering. 

Week Two

  1. Taxes, taxes, taxes.
  2. Continue indoor projects like cleaning the basement and painting upstairs hallway and bathroom so I can garden 24/7 as soon as the snow melts.

Week Three

  1. Check on stored bulbs such as dinner-plate dahlias and consider potting up and growing for early start.
  2. Sow seeds – I love planting seeds in peat pots so you can just plant it directly in the ground, pot and all.
  3. Garden planning. What do we want to eat this summer and fall?
  4. Share, share, share. Share garden ideas with friends. Share seeds collected last fall. Share garden books and magazines. The more we share, the more we have.
  5. Scour and savor all garden catalogs as they arrive.
  6. Prune, prune, and prune some more. I want to prune my William Baffin climbing roses aggressively, my crab apple needs some pruning maintenance, and I’m going to reshape my boxwoods.

Week Four

  1. Best for last! Visit my grandma in Palm Desert, California, and get new ideas to take home to Madison
