Here we are with a list of things to do in the garden in March. If we enter March, it means it's time to welcome the new season.

Prepare the Soil

If you want to plant new plants in your garden or if you want to grow your own vegetables, you should start by preparing the planting areas. Soil quality is very important for plants. One way to improve soil quality is to allow the soil to breathe. Ventilate your soil with a rake and let it rest for 5-10 days.

Recover the Grass

If you have a garden that you germinate, it is very likely that you will see deterioration in your grass in the winter cold. So how will they recover? You can start by clearing the weeds from your lawn. If you want to have healthier-looking grass in the spring period, you can do intermediate germination during this period.

Don't Skip the Pruning

If you have plants in your garden that have been damaged by rain, snow, or wind in March, when many vegetables are planted, you should start spring pruning this month. Pruning will allow your plants to give much healthier leaves and have a fuller form in the new cycle. Roses and bougainvillea, the apple of the garden, will also be waiting for you for pruning. However, we should not forget that the pruning time varies according to the climatic conditions of the place where you live.

Change Pots

If you think the pots of your plants are small, the month of March that you have been waiting for a pot change has arrived! However, when changing pots, your plants can be damaged very easily, their roots can be broken, and when you move to a new pot, they can die without you knowing how. In order not to experience these misfortunes, you should know how to change the pot and what you should pay attention to.

Fertilizer Selection

Plants in the growth phase need nutrients. You should choose the fertilizer according to your plant type in March so that they can have the nutrients they need when they start to grow in spring.


Keep in mind that irrigation needs will change as the seasons change. When you turn on your air conditioner or heater, the humidity of the environment will also change. In this case, your plant's water demand will differ. Depending on the pot of your plant, its location in the house, and the season, the water need may change. It's best to keep watering simple. Place your finger in the top layer of the soil. If it is damp, do not water it. If dry, add water.

Gardens at Home

Indoor plants:

If you have created a wonderful garden for yourself in your home, it is time to review your indoor plants. As spring approaches, you should prepare your indoor plants for spring just like your garden plants. At the beginning of March, you should get your soil ready for planting, and the end is ideal for planting. First of all, if you have potted plants whose soil is deficient, make up for the deficiencies with quality soil that you trust. Most plants can live happily in the same pot for years. However, some fast-growing species may outgrow their pots and need repotting.

Replace them:

Another issue to be considered in the care of indoor plants is that you can take our plants away from the glass fronts and take them to warmer areas to their old places towards the end of March in order not to be affected by the winter cold.
