March in the Garden

By February 28, 2023Beet 2023 03 March

Spring is nearly here! Daffodils and grape hyacinth are starting to pop up. 

Hopefully the weather will start to get warmer, and we can spend more time in our gardens.

I am continuing this series of articles and hope that you find them helpful and inspiring. In March, there is quite a bit to do in the garden depending on what you want to grow. Our gardens still need to be cared for so that they will do well in the spring and summer. By caring for our gardens, we are also caring for ourselves – physically, mentally, and emotionally.

The Jackson County Master Gardener Association has a great resource for gardeners to use. It is the Garden Guide for the Rogue Valley – Year-Round & Month by Month.  This great reference book for gardeners is mainly about growing vegetables, berries, and melons.
