Hot Tips for March!

· Sow Sweet Peas early in March.
· Sow perennial flowers such as Hollyhocks, Verbena bonariensis and Lupins in a cold frame.
· Tie in tender new shoots of clematis that are starting to appear now to avoid them getting damaged.
· Remove dead Hydrangea heads left to protect this year’s flower buds.
· Plant Rhubarb crowns and Jerusalem Artichokes.
· Feed currant bushes with a fertilizer high in nitrogen.
· When conditions are suitable, sow crops such as parsnips, leeks, spring onions, peas, lettuces, broad beans and radishes.
· Sow tomato seeds in peat pots in the greenhouse. They will require about 20˚C to germinate. Allow 2 seeds per pot and pinch out the weaker of the two after germination. These will be ready to plant out in about 6 weeks.
