March is a great time for preparing your garden!
Planting a mix of annual, perennial, and flowering shrubs in a diverse range of colors, shapes, sizes, heights, and growth habits will help to attract a variety of beneficial insects. Beneficial insects are a great way to reduce pests naturally.

Top dress your strawberries with a balanced fertilizer two weeks after planting. We recommend Acid Mix (on sale through March) or our Rose and Flower Mix. Also be sure to fertilizer your existing raspberry plants with Acid Mix. This early spring application promotes healthy vegetative growth. Apply again to all your berries when blooms appear, to encourage fruit.
We have mason bee houses, cocoons, and hatching boxes available while supplies last in the garden department! Support these early solitary pollinators, and bee sure to take a look at our Mason Bee Info to see what makes them so beneficial and unique.
