March Seed Starting for Zone 3 Gardens

March Seed Starting for Zone 3 Gardens

March is here!  The days are getting longer, which means it is time to start thinking about starting your indoor seeds.

Before seeding, please thoroughly clean all your tools and recycled pots.

Here is a table of the more common seeds started indoors.  Please be sure to read the seed package for any additional growing information such as cold stratification, etc.

Early-Mid March
Dahlia Petunias
Peppers Pansy
Viola Verbena
Salvia Linaria
Gazania Heliotrope
Phlox Leeks


Mid-Late March
 Alyssum Oregano Statice
Aster Parsley Dianthus
Coleus Peppermint Tomato
Snapdragons Spearmint Marigold


As tempting as it may be, to ensure your greatest success do not start your seeds too early.  Seeding too early will lead your seedlings to stretch, making them leggy and weak.  These seedlings will not thrive once it's time to transplant.  A smaller transplant will do better outdoors than a tall leggy one.  Your goal is to have a nice healthy stocky plant.

This is not an extensive list, if you have a question please comment below and we will help with any growing question you may have.

Happy Planting!
