March is an exciting time of the year for avid gardeners. In much of the country, the official start of spring represents a perfect time to get back to nature. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of growing something living. That’s why gardeners come back to their roots year after year.
St. Patrick’s Day is an ideal day to plant your peas! Something incredible about peas, besides the fact they’re very healthy, is that they are tolerant to cold weather. In many places it’s still nippy in the middle of march, so it’s not a perfect time to plant certain varieties. Peas, however, will have no problem starting their lives on the day that people celebrate drinking, shenanigans, and Irish fun.
Start Your Slow Growing Plant Varieties in March
Peas aren’t the only variety of plant you can start from seed in March. Slower growing plants like vegetables like parsley, leeks, onions, cabbage, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, and peppers are all excellent seeds to start. The work you do in March will help you ensure an incredible garden later in the year.
Start feeding your houseplants again in March and repot the ones that need it. They will all start growing faster after this month, so they need all the nutrition they can get.
