3. Things to do in March…

Kitchen Garden

  • Fill the ‘hungry gap’ from mid-March to May by sowing quick to mature edibles – eg salad leaves, pea shoots, spinach, beetroot, spring onions, and herbs such as dill and coriander.  If possible, use a moveable cold frame.
  • Soil can be warmed a few weeks before sowing seed or planting out by covering with plastic sheeting.
  • Clay soils need to dry out (so should not be covered in plastic sheeting, which will keep moisture in).
  • Harden-off indoor grown plants before planting outdoors.
  • Soil temperature should be at least 7-8 degrees C before sowing outdoors.
  • Plant-out tender vegetables

 

Sow Directly

  • Direct sow turnip, carrot directly into pre-warmed soil.
