March Landscape Tips

We have good news, SPRING officially arrives this week.  With the beautiful Spring weather we have been experiencing, it is a great time celebrate the change of seasons and to start getting your spring gardening under way.March is a good time to transplant shrubs. You can move them as soon as the soil is workable, but before buds have swelled or broken open.March is also a good time to fertilize those shrubs.Divide and transplant summer blooming perennials now and fertilize established ones as soon as new growth appears.Fertilize tulips as foliage appears and make another application after flowering. Fertilize all other spring-flowering bulbs after flowering with bone meal or bulb booster.If weeds appear in bulb beds, remove them by hand rather than using a tool that can damage the bulb base.Remove mulch covers from roses, azaleas, clematis vines and other tender shrubs once nighttime temperatures rise into the 30s (but re-cover them if temperatures drop).Contact Northampton Nursery to discuss any landscape or hardscape projects you may considering.
