Stirrings of Spring: Gardeners, It's Time To Start Your Seeds

If this mild weather has you itching for spring, you are not alone. Even though the temperature has dropped again, I've decided winter is officially over and I can't wait to get out in the garden and start working.

Unfortunately Mother Nature has other designs, and it's still too cold and damp to actually start working the soil. However, it's the perfect time to start certain seeds indoors and get a head start on the growing season.

If you're growing veggies, seeds that can be started now include broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. In mid-month you can start your tomatoes, peppers, and even some lettuces to get a jump start on your lettuce crop. Spinach can be direct seeded in the garden a little later in the month. Onions and leeks should have been started in February, but you can still get them going early in the month and plant them outdoors in several weeks. Peas are traditionally planted in the garden on St. Patrick's Day and ready for harvest in May.

Perennial seeds that can be started this month include Bergenia, perennial bachelor's button, Clematis, Penstemon, black-eyed Susan, Helianthus, hardy sweet pea, primrose, spiderwort and violets, among others. Annual flowers can also be started indoors this month, with the exact timing based on the individual germination time of a particular species.

If you've never started your own seeds before, keep in mind that it is a learning process and you might not have success with every seed you try. Through trial and error you'll figure out what works best with the growing conditions in your home and what plants you are better off buying as seedlings.

Cannabis grows well year round here in sucky southern California. I mean, so I've heard.

I've been daydreaming about getting my garden started. Thanks for sharing this info. This will be my second year having a garden, and I hope my crops will be as good as last year (or better). Being able to grow your own veggies is so much fun, and so rewarding!

I can't do diddly squat with gardening outside until the damn snow melts. We're getting more snow today to add to the snow pile up that's already here. It's seems there is no end in sight for winter right now but that's how it is this time of year for anybody that lives in a snowy area. I think I have a dose of the winter blues myself or cabin fever is what a lot of the locals call it. Damn, where's all the global warming when ya need it?
