Wondering What You Should Be Doing in Your Garden?

Approximate Timing & March Gardening Activities:

Early March

  • It's aphid time!  Stock up on Bonide Neem Oil and/or Live Ladybugs to combat aphids.
  • Prep your veggie beds to make sure you are ready for planting by amending and fertilizing your soil.   We recommend organic compost, earthworm castings, E.B. Stone Sure Start or Tomato and Vegetable food.  If you aren’t sure what your soil needs, we have soil test kits available.
  • Use Bonide’s Captain Jack’s Deadbug Brew to control Codling moth population.
