March Garden Calendar
Spruce up for spring
• Rake old leaves. You'll feel like you're giving your yard a fresh spring start when you remove the remnants of winter -- late-falling leaves, sticks and trash that may have blown in during the winter months.
• Cut back perennials. If you didn't do this in the fall, cut them back now.
• Pull away winter mulch. As soon as you see signs of new growth, pull away and lean up any straw or leaves you applied in the fall to protect perennials.
