Seeds to Sow: Early March



Time to get started! In the Northern Hemisphere, the sowing season really begins in March, then reaches its peak in April. In early March, the choice of seeds you should be sowing is still quite limited… and the use of artificial lighting is still strongly recommended because the days are still short. After all, you don’t want weak, floppy seedlings do you?
