Kent Gardener Maggie L. Moor-Orth gives readers a March schedule for prepping their gardens.
Here’s your gardening calendar for March.
For the first half of the month
Spray peach trees with Ferbam or lime sulfur. No spray is needed for cherry or plum trees at this time. Fertilize trees, roses, shrubs and evergreens.
For the second half of March:
Plant cool-season crops (peas, lettuce, cabbage, onions, kale, broccoli, radishes, and turnips) if weather conditions permit.
