Its March...lets garden!

Renovate rampant climbers, such as honeysuckles, by pruning the stems hard back

Lift, divide and replant overgrown herbaceous perennials as soon as the new shoots appear

In sheltered borders, surround any emerging shoots of herbaceous perennials with circles of coarse grit to help keep slugs and snails at bay

Give fruit trees a feed with a potash-rich fertiliser

Gravel paths and parking areas are sprouting seedling weeds, so put a hoe through them or burn them off before they can take hold

Fuchsias, dahlias and pelargoniums which have been kept dry and semi-dormant indoors over the winter, can be trimmed back, and given a little moisture and plenty of light, to encourage them into growth again. Re-pot them once they have begun to move

Get trimming those buddleia bushes

Your buzzword for March is:

MULCH, MULCH, MULCH!

Good stuff! I do have honeysuckle, so I'll get a-prunin'. And my herbacous borders are about ready to take over the planet, so good advice there too. Where can we see pics?
