Sow seeds in March

March is when jobs start to build up in the garden. Taking time out to sow seeds is relaxing whilst still being productive.

I have written a blog on what to sow in January. You can continue to sow most of those seeds until April; this will give you a succession of vegetables throughout summer.

My top favourite flowers to sow now:

  1. Cosmos
  2. Delphinium
  3. Scabiosa
  4. Nigella
  5. Helianthus

I like this mix of flowers and vegetables. You can also find guides on what to grow at Thompson & Morgan or Sarah Raven.
