What to sow in March.



March Is a fantastic time of the year the days are getting longer and the temps are getting warmer. We have been sowing lots and running round keeping a close eye on the new plant baby's here at the nursery.


But for the home grower now is a good time to start getting that poly or growing space up and running. Getting rid of all the dead things and preparing beds for the new lives you will be bring in to the garden. Here are some thing you can start to put in now and you will have an abundant growing patch in no time.



Here in wales we do thing a bit later, normally as our climate is a bit later than most. Aberystwyth tends to be a bit warmer that up here at our nursery so as a ball park planting time we are about 2 weeks behind but don't panic if you have space in side or a green house or a poly you can get things going sooner if you like to heat thing a lot sooner.


March is a great time to start sowing seeds as the weather begins to warm up and daylight hours increase. Here are some vegetables, herbs, and flowers that you can sow in March in the UK:


  1. Vegetables:

  • Early potatoes: Start chitting early potato varieties indoors in March for planting later in the spring.

  • Peas: Sow pea seeds directly into the ground in well-drained soil.

  • Broad beans: Sow broad bean seeds directly into the ground.

  • Carrots: Sow carrot seeds directly into the ground in well-prepared soil.

  • Lettuce: Sow lettuce seeds indoors for later transplanting or directly outdoors under cloches or fleece.

  • Radishes: Sow radish seeds directly into the ground for a quick harvest.

Make sure to follow the specific instructions on the seed packets regarding planting depth, spacing, and care. Additionally, consider your local climate and conditions when deciding what to sow and when to plant. Some regions may have slightly different planting times based on microclimates or local weather patterns, so it's always a good idea to consult with local gardening resources or experts for the most accurate information.
