With March comes spring once again, when the growing season kicks off anew, and what an exciting month it is going to be.
Mother’s Day is in a couple of weeks, and what better way to show your loving parent that you care than a beautiful bouquet of cut flowers? Anything from daffodils to roses, there’s something to make every mother smile.
Some plants that you might want to start sowing outdoors with some protection this March include:
- Broad beans
- Cabbage (Savoy)
- Onions (Seed)
Please make sure you employ some protective measures such as cloches, fleece, and upcycled milk bottles, as frost is still a threat this early in the year and you don’t want to risk losing all your hard work so soon in the season.
I’ll be at the Ideal Home Show from the 17th of March through to the 2nd of April. I’ve designed and created a series of gardens that will inspire visitors to try something similar at home. I’m also hosting a ‘plant nursery’, so if you are attending the show, come and see me and I’ll try to cure some of your plant woes.
A brand-new series of Love Your Garden will be returning to UK TV screens very soon. Keep an eye out for it on your local TV listings.
In the meantime, as we get closer to spring in the Northern Hemisphere (21/03/23), head to my website or to my Youtube channel to get all of my latest seasonal gardening advice before the growing season gets fully underway.
