EDP Norfolk - - GARDEN GUIDE -

March is a good time to re-pot pot bound plants. They will grow away and fill the new soil quickly as the weather warms up.

Keep a look out for snails and slugs at­tack­ing new growth and treat with your pre­ferred method.

Although it’s only March watch out for lily beetle on Fri­t­il­laria imperialis (Crown im­pe­ri­als) as they can quickly spoil leaves and flow­ers.

Af­ter tidy­ing peren­nial bor­ders give plants a boost with slow re­lease feed and a good thick layer of mulch to help pre­vent weeds and re­tain mois­ture dur­ing the sum­mer.
