allotment cartoon Tasks in the garden the wrigglers worms

Ironically, it’s warmer in a cold frame

There are lots of tasks to start in March, here’s one for you … from The Wrigglers

The worms have spent some time thinking of tasks in the garden for March. There’s quite a few to dos. For example, hardening off your plugs and plants in a cold frame. Follow our blog to get daily gardening cartoons, tasks and tips.

March is still a cold month, so if growing plants or protecting seeds outside it is a good idea to have a cold frame. This is a cold frame cartoon, with one worm in a cold frame and the other outsdie, with frost on its nose. The worm in the cold frame says, "It's a cold frame" The other worm says, No good, I'm looking for somewhere warmer to hang out"

It’s March and the garden is starting to spring into life a bit. It’s still cold … the worms are making it a bit brighter with some cartoons of ‘what to do’. As luck would have it we just made a cold frame, and here’s a link to how we made it

If you haven’t already, take a look at our Put Pollinators First page, supporting the BBC Gardener’s World campaign to reduce the decline of insects and bees in our gardens. Join the campaign and plant some wild flowers in your garden, as well as using your cold frame to keep the less hardy plants safe.

That’s enough from the worms, here’s some tip-top advise from the experts

Including protecting your plants from slugs advice.
