Spring is just around the corner, and what better way to welcome it than to plant some flowers in your garden? Although Swans Trail Farms concentrates on crops such as u-pick strawberries, u-pick apples and a pumpkin patch, we still love the color of beautiful flowers in early spring. If you're living in the Pacific Northwest, March is the perfect time to start planting. As the winter frost starts to melt away, the temperature begins to warm up, bringing with it the perfect conditions for flowers to blossom. In this blog post, we will share with you some of the most beautiful flower varieties that you can plant outside during the beginning of March in the Pacific Northwest region.

To plant daffodils, make sure you plant them in a well-draining soil and a spot where they can receive full sun to partial shade.


Pansies are another delightful flower variety that can be planted in early March. They come in a variety of colors, including purple, yellow, orange, blue, and more.
