    Default Sowing suggestions - March

    This is going to be a month by month sowing thread. Please post what you are sowing each month, along with any good tips. (no discussions whether it is a good plan or not please ) Hopefully this will help new gardeners get to grips with succesional sowing too.
    The thread will be cleared each month with the sowing tips posted in the Growing Techniques Forum.
    One good resource is the RHS veg growing calender Veg calendar | Royal Horticultural Society.

    Looks like the Veg Calendar on the RHS site isn't working.. you can't access it via searching for it on their site either.

    Going to have a look what I'm sowing later, but just about to plant out some garlic cloves and onion sets.

    Peppers, toms and swiss chard so far.
    Spuds chitting away wonderfully!

    Have put parsnip seeds and celeriac seeds to sprout (hopefully!) on kitchen paper. First time growing celeriac.

    I have chillies, aubergines and courgettes on the go. Hoping to start some tomatoes and leeks this coming week.

    So far this month I have started off some Chillies and Aubergines in my heated propagator. Peas have been sown in loo roll middles in my unheated conservatory ready for planting out in a few weeks. Also started some first early and salad potatoes in tubs, will earth up as they grow and keep them in the conservatory until the risk of frost has passed them put them out on my patio.

    Yesterday I sowed a short row of carrots, parsnips, lettuce, calabrese and broccoli raab under cloches on the lottie. I've got chillis, aubergines, toms and sweet peppers germinating at home. I've also put some squashes and sunflowers in the heated prop.
