In the Garden | March 2018

This month's In the Garden graphics are in honor of my late mother, Margaret Ann, or Peggy as she was called, who loved quilts, and window boxes, and blooming bulbs. She admired pretty as much as she was pretty. I miss her all year long, but I hear her voice strongest right around her birthday, March 6. If she's watching, she'll be happy to see that I'm planning my flower boxes. This year, I'm planting jonquils in a public garden in her memory. 

Find, below, an addendum to the annual monthly In the Garden | March gardening guide. The annual guide outlines all of the gardening to-do's, maintenance, tasks and more for most USDA gardening zones for the month of March, in general. You'll definitely want to check it out to keep your yard and garden going, and growing strong.

Here, you'll find weather forecasts, full moon schedule, and best planting practices for Zone 1 weather (Texas, Oklahoma, some surrounding areas in west Louisiana and east New Mexico), primarily, and March 2018, specifically.
