Plant It in March

Plant in the winter for early spring starts

Taking advantage of the growing season means getting as early a start as possible. For optimum growth, many flowering plants benefit by being sown, started, transplanted or divided this month. For some regions, March is the earliest you can get out and work the ground. For others, especially in more temperate areas, March is prime time for getting plants established for abundant summer growth.
