We’ve made it – it’s officially Spring. Now the weather may or may not be agreeing with this fact, but the arrival of March really is the start of the growing season in my mind – even if it’s sleeting outside!
If you’re raring to go in the garden or allotment here are some ideas for what to plant this month.
Peas I’ve always planted my peas direct into their growing site later in the Spring, but this year I’m going to get them started earlier. This month you can sow peas (and broad beans if you haven’t already got them in) outdoors or in a cold frame if you have one, transfer them to their final growing spot when they’ve grown large enough to handle. Sowing them into a length of plastic guttering filled with compost makes it much easier to plant them out; you just hoe a shallow row where you want to plant them and slide the whole row of seedlings into it in one go. Easy!
