March Gardens

The time has come to prepare the plants and trees in our garden for the arrival of spring, "which with climate change seems to be with us."

To prepare our plants and trees, we must finish the pruning work, which we had left in prevention of any possible frost, especially our citrus fruits: orange, mandarin, lemon, etc., we must clear the branches so they can air and insects such as aphids and mealybugs cannot easily nest inside.

It is also advisable to spray them with paraffin oil to eliminate eggs that may have stuck on the branches. On the other hand, it would be convenient to pay them to strengthen and begin to grow strong and vigorous. There are many fertilizer formulas, but the two most advisable are: "special citrus granulated fertilizer" that works very well and is very easy to apply or put "earthworm humus" on the ground to improve the quality of this and that the roots grow more easily.

Another of the plants that we would have to pay attention to are our rose bushes, of course, they should already be pruned. It is also advisable to spray with paraffin oil, to avoid pests in early summer.

On the other hand, we have to pay attention to our climbers, such as bougainvillea, bignonias, etc., which we must prune and clear, in order to help them in their beginning of growth and avoid having to constantly clean dried leaves and flowers. We also get a feeling of luminosity and spaciousness that with the sunny days we usually have at this time of year, they are very much appreciated.

If you have any questions you can stop by the Garden Center or send your question to our email: calidagarden@gmail.com and we will be happy to answer it.

Greetings and enjoy the sun in your garden.
