Flower Seeds to Sow in March
Vegetable Seeds to Sow in March
Summer Flowering Bulbs can be planted e.g. Iris, Gladiolus etc…
Most Half Hardy Flowers can also be started in the greenhouse providing you have bottom heat and a general temperature of 65-70°F can be maintained.
Prepare to plant Shallots and bring the ‘chitting’ Potatoes into better light.
All Root Vegetables can now be sown as well as salad crops
Peppers can also be sown in a greenhouse at 75-80°F. (Remember most Peppers take up to one month to germinate and need a high temperature).
Sweet Peas that were put into cold frames in Sept/Oct should now be taken out and the growing point removed leaving three pairs of true leaves.
Don’t let the lawn get too long before a light cut.
Bulbs are appearing everywhere so make sure you have enough slug pellets.
