Seeds to sow in March

March is a big seed sowing month depending on the weather. The soil should start to warm up a little bit, but don’t jump ahead of yourself. It’s always good to watch what is going on outside. If the weeds in your beds are sprouting, it might be a good time to start sowing vegetables out there as well.

Outdoors: Root crops including beetroot (early varieties), carrots, turnips and leafy vegetables like chard, spinach etc. can be sown outside depending on the weather and according to more specific growing suggestions of individual varieties. It’s also a good time to sow radishes, spring onions, peas, broad beans and more.

Under cover: Beetroot, Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, cauliflower, summer cabbages, onions, lettuce, celery and celeriac. Tomatoes, chillies, peppers and aubergines can still be sown until mid March for undercover cropping.
