Blossoms on the Go provides its first tip for March.

Bareroot planting will be coming to an end during this month, and I know most will have their hedging plants in, but if you haven’t, we are coming to the end and if were hoping to get some bareroot which is great value at the moment and great quality don’t leave it too much longer.

The month of March can be a very busy month as lots of us start to sow our seeds in containers and seed trays its great to start them in a tunnel or on windowsill .This can be a fabulous time for to put some of the plans into action  expand a variety of flower in the beds and borders, more and more people save seeds from their perennials and its lovely to grow your own seed.

This month is also a time when a lot of vegetables become available and can be the great to start off your vegetable garden. Now I know what your thinking that the garden is still swimming and that’s ok some have tunnels or greenhouses and start vegetables in them .

The potatoes seed are now available and now is a good time to start chitting them. Place the potato in an egg box or tray by the windowsill for 6 weeks before planting to encourage sprouting.

Some of the vegetables is also available in plug tray if you don’t want to wait for seed and can be planted in window boxes or pot to bring on while we wait for the garden to dry out a bit, most garden are still vey wet .Some of the tips I would give is consider what grew well last year and if something didn’t do well ask yourself why was the ground not suitable is it too windy maybe in that part of the garden have you been able to rotate the crops each year. And do you need to add more nutrients to the soil .

March has so much to offer and am sure you cant wait to get stuck in to start on your vegetable garden Happy planting.
