March is a great time to start working on your lawn! Depending on the type of turf, you may have some early spring lawn care, or you could go play golf!
As the last of the short, cold days of winter come to a close, we can start anticipating the blossoms of all the early spring harbingers. Amongst them are the oft-overlooked broadleaf evergreen in the Ericaceae family of acid loving plants, the PJM Rhododendron. This smaller leafed rhodo begins its season early, about the same time as forsythia. Purple to lavender or pink flowers, depending on variety, start to appear in late March or early April and usually cover the plant with color.
Cornus mas 'Golden Glory', the Corneliancherry is a seldom used smaller tree worth considering for its durability and early season effectiveness.
It's that time of year...with so much springtime anticipation that you will start to notice the striking witchhazels in full bloom!
