Vegetables to sow in March
It’s starting to get a little warmer outside, but spring is finally here. We can say goodbye to cold winter nights, and begin to welcome sunnier evenings. A new month ahead is a great opportunity to grow something new, unique or a traditional garden staple. There is plenty of veg to get ready to sow in March, such as over 270 varieties!
To help you choose from so many, some vegetables to sow in March include early varieties of tomatoes and fruits. These will develop well on plants when grown under glass in a heated greenhouse. For quick germination it is best to sow the seed in a heated propagator or you could use a windowsill.
It is best to sow outdoor varieties later in the month and when the plants are potted on as they grow, ready for planting out in early June. During March and April, celery seed can be sown into pots then placed in the greenhouse so you will have plants ready for planting out during May and June.
Shallot sets can be planted this month and, once conditions have warmed up, onion sets may also be planted. Seed potatoes should be set out in trays so that the shoots will form. Plantings of early varieties can be made during March, but main crop varieties are best planted in April.
