WINTER PLANNING FOR SPRING PLANTING

March Planning Shelmerdine

How does your garden grow?

With this question in mind, March is the month to plan your gardening season ahead.  There may still be snow on the ground, but if you take advantage of March as a planning month then when planting season arrives, you’ll be able to devote your time to where you want to be most – in your garden!

Consider taking in a gardening show to get your wheels in motion. Gardeners of all knowledge levels and skills will enjoy Gardening Saturday, an exciting event held on March 28 at Winnipeg’s Victoria Inn. This show features over 100 booths and 15 educational sessions.  It’s an interactive show where you can ask questions and learn from many gardening enthusiasts.  While you’re there, be sure to say ‘hi’ and pick up a little treat from our Shelmerdine booth!

While it’s still to cold to be outdoors much, a fantastic book to get lost in is the recently released Shelmerdine Plant and Garden Guide.  This book was written by our experts and features 3,000 listings and more than 2500 colour photographs of plants that will thrive in our climate zone. The guide is an invaluable tool for every gardener!

How To Make the Most Out of March:

  • Take advantage of free seminars offered by local garden centres
  • Book appointments with landscape designers
  • Review notes from last year’s garden journal if you kept one
  • Read through seed catalogs
  • Sketch out your garden plot so you know what will go where
  • Buy seeds – you’ll find the best selection of varieties in March

Happy planning and here’s hoping for an early spring!
