Most mornings I run – my thinking time – I take Livingstone – my dog and most certainly my best running partner. Today is one of those days when the sun is shining and I felt as if we could have kept on running. Thinking about what to do each day helps me to run up the hills. So today I am thinking about what I will be doing during March in my garden and I thought you might like to share it with me.

So . . March is the time to be planting your early potatoes and some of you will know that I have already done this. We have planted both in the ground and in planters.

Each of the potato planters takes 4 potatoes.

I put approx 20cm compost in the bottom, placed my potatoes and then covered over with compost – all I have to do now is wait!

The planters I used are 40x40x45cm and come with a liner

I also planted some of the seeds for the cut flower garden

  • Sweetpeas  my favourite flowers
  • Sunflowers
  • Antirhinnum
  • Stocks
  • Echinachea

As well as the veges

  • Peas
  • Broadbeans
  • Parsnips
  • Salad Leaves

Swetpeas I have to have they are by far my favourite summer flower. However this year I am so pleased I have found non pollen sunflowers this means I can plant them in the cut flower garden and bring them indoors without my husband and son being affected by hayfever – yippee!

I am lucky to have a greenhouse and the seeds we planted earlier are all beginning to germinate, the sweetpeas and the peas are are just coming through, the stocks are 2 leaf seedlings and the garlic is sprouting well.

The vege patch is aleady dug and some seeds planted and the onions are in, the spring bulbs are flowering all in all I am thinking that things are taking shape.

Gardening is such a satisfying thing to do – don’t you think so, not only does it give you something beautiful to look at – but the reward for all your hardwork is a basket (or two) of your very own home grown produce.
