March is an exciting time for gardeners as the days start to get longer, and the weather begins to warm up. It’s the perfect time to start sowing seeds, both indoors and outdoors, to get a head start on your gardening season. Here are some plants you can sow in March:
- Vegetables: March is an excellent time to start sowing vegetable seeds indoors, such as tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and broccoli. You can also start sowing hardy vegetables outdoors, such as peas, radishes, lettuce, and spinach.
- Herbs: Many herbs, such as basil, parsley, chives, and thyme, can be sown indoors in March. These herbs can be used in cooking or to add flavor to your dishes.
- Flowers: March is the perfect time to start sowing flower seeds indoors, such as petunias, marigolds, and impatiens. You can also start sowing some hardy annual flowers outdoors, such as poppies, pansies, and snapdragons.
- Fruit trees: March is an excellent time to start sowing fruit tree seeds, such as apples, cherries, and pears. These trees will take several years to mature, but starting them now will give you a head start.
When sowing seeds, make sure to follow the instructions on the packet and provide the seeds with the appropriate amount of sunlight, water, and nutrients. By starting your seeds in March, you’ll be well on your way to a bountiful gardening season.
