In March it’s still quite cold, but it’s time for gardeners to prepare for spring planting. You need to check the condition of the flower beds, put them in order, make sure that the flowers survived the winter well.
It is necessary to remove shelters from perennials, loosen the soil, and add nutrient mixtures. When working, gardeners are advised to focus on the Lunar calendar for March 2020. He will tell you which days will be favorable and unfavorable.
What is and is undesirable to plant in March
The first to sow annuals that tolerate cold:
Even with severe frosts, they will not die. These flowers germinate better if planted in early spring or even before winter. It is recommended to cover them with polyethylene or non-woven material. This is not necessary for heat, but to maintain the required level of humidity. This is especially necessary for sandy soils, as they quickly lose fluid. For the same reason, seeds on light soil are buried more strongly than on hard ones.
You can sow at room conditions for further transplantation into the flower garden:
- tagetes (marigolds);
- lobelia, etc.
Thanks to this, the plants will bloom earlier than they are immediately planted on the street. In the first month of spring, you can already do without additional light sources.
So that the flowers do not get sick with a black leg, humus cannot be added to the soil mixture, planting should be rare. Depth depends on the size of the seeds. The smaller they are, the smaller the termination.
When sowing, the following recommendations must be observed:
- small seeds of ageratum, snapdragon, lobelia, petunias, fragrant tobacco can only be scattered on a damp surface or sprinkled with a little calcined sand, covered with polyethylene;
- seedlings of sweet peas, nasturtium, previously incubated for 24 hours in water at room temperature, place in a moist gauze bag until they hatch;
- ageratum, lobelia, godetium, sweet peas, snapdragon, annual asters to plant in a cool room (+ 12 ... + 15 ° C) for better germination, also keep the sprouts at a low temperature;
- dahlias, sweet peas, watering the lobelia after sowing, not allowing the soil to dry out, spray;
