The coldest March…since records began?

Posted 27th Mar 2018 20:52pm by Simon Johnson

I’m sure the met office will tell us soon but we could be heading for the coldest March ever recorded!  Lawn care statisticians monitor plant and insect growth using data known as ‘growth degree days’.  GDD tracks the impact of temperature on growth of plant life and we are currently 75% down on March of 2017; that’s why your lawns are so short of growth the ground and air temperatures are just not high enough to stimulate the plant.  Hopefully however, you have had your moss controlled and now is a perfect time for a measured dose of slow release granular fertiliser. Spring is just around the corner.
