As Spring approaches, us gardeners are eagerly preparing our plots for the new March gardening growing season. Now is a great time to start planting, but it’s important to consider our English climate. Weather patterns in your area will determine which vegetables are best to plant at this time of year. Here are some of our favourite choices:

Perfect Veg for Planting

  1. Peas – Thrive in cool weather and can be planted directly into the ground or in containers. Peas are a great crop for small gardens and balconies, as they don’t require much space to grow. They’re also simply delicious!
  2. Radishes – Grow quickly and can be harvested in just a few weeks. Radishes are a great crop to plant with children, as they are easy to grow and provide a fun way to introduce young gardeners to the joys of growing their own food!
  3. Potatoes – Easy to grow and can be planted directly into the ground or in containers. Potatoes do require a lot of space to grow, so it’s important to make sure you have enough room in your garden before planting. They also need to be protected from frost, so make sure to cover them with horticultural fleece or a cloche.

Delicious Fruit Choices

In addition to vegetables, March is the perfect time to start planting a variety of fruit trees and bushes. Apples, pears, plums, and cherries are all popular choices, as they can provide a bountiful harvest for years to come. It’s important to choose the right type of tree or bush for your garden’s soil and climate, so make sure to do your research before planting.

Grow Seasonally

One of the great benefits of growing your own fruit and vegetables is the ability to eat them in season. By eating produce that’s in season, you can enjoy the full flavour and nutritional benefits of fresh, ripe produce. In addition, growing your own food can help to reduce your carbon footprint and support local biodiversity. Growing your own really is a win/win!

Enjoy Your Hard Work

In a British garden, there are many fruits and vegetables that are in season during the Spring and Summer months. Strawberries, raspberries, and gooseberries are all popular fruits to grow, while lettuce, spinach, and kale are great options for fresh, healthy salads. Tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers can also be grown in greenhouses or even on sunny balconies.

It’s important to remember that gardening is a labour of love, and it takes time and effort to reap the rewards. But by starting your garden in March and planting the right crops for your area, you can enjoy fresh, delicious produce all season long.

So, put on your gardening gloves and get started on creating your very own fruit and vegetable patch right in your garden.
