March is when most of us can get serious about starting seeds – whether it is indoors for healthy vegetables or some hardy annuals sown outside – March is a busy month. Here are some things you can be thinking out in March.
Sow seeds indoors
Even plants that can stand a little frost are best started indoors until the weather settles down. Sort you seeds into cool weather flowers and vegetables and warm weather varieties. Start the cool weather ones at the beginning of March and the warmer weather ones at the end of March.
Try some new varieties of vegetables
Each year, Burpee comes out with some fun new varieties for gardeners to try. Each new variety has spent 3 years in the testing gardens at the Burpee farm so that it is known to be easy to grow and perfect for new, as well as experienced, gardeners to try.
Sow some cool weather peas
Peas like to be sown in cool soil so as soon as the snow has gone and the waterlogged soil has drained, you will be able to put in some great peas. Check out these new varieties too!
Find which seeds prefer to be direct sown
Some seeds prefer to be sown directly where you want them to grow. Peas, carrots and beans are just a few of the seeds that don’t like to be transplanted.
