Heading into Autumn, March isn’t a big planting month, but for those interested in getting some seedlings going and ready for Winter as the temperatures are still quite warm, go right ahead!
A top tip: Water your seedlings with a spray bottle rather than a hosepipe, trying to keep them moist to assist with germination, and keep them out of constant direct sunlight. Here’s the March plant list:
Beetroot, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Calendula, Carrot, Chard, Celery, Chinese Cabbage, Chives, Chilli, Kale, Kohlrabi, Globe artichoke, Leaf mustard, Lettuce, Onion, Parsnip, Parsley, Peas, Potato, Radish, Rhubarb, Turnip
I am putting out a sincere request for anyone who has some spare seedling trays and seeds to start growing some seedlings to donate to the HVA carnival this year, as all proceeds will go to Friends of Harfiled Village Parks.
Please get in touch with me if you can do this through the Patchwork Facebook page.
