What to do in the garden this week - Mid March•
Posted on 15 March 2012

Job List1. Sow more seeds. Sow lettuces and rocket every other week. Only sow about 15 seeds at a time. The packets contain hundreds but don’t use them all up at once! This is called staggered sowing. Sow flower seeds, marigolds, nasturtiums, sunflowers. We are holding a family competition on who can grow the tallest and best. Lupines, delphiniums, aquilegia’s – all cost a fortune in garden centres and don’t take long to grow at all. I also find them easy to grow. Sow peas and beans, this may seem a little early, but I am going to have two batches, you can wait a few more weeks for these.
