Five colourful flowers for March sowing.
March is one of the most rewarding months in the garden, which means I have been busy, at home sowing colourful flowers. In my post today I am going to suggest to you, 5 colourful flower varieties that you can grow yourself from seed this month at home. Below are five colourful flowers for March sowing.
Looking back through my notes from last year, I just cannot believe how many different types of flowers I grew. I prefer to grow cut flowers to use for projects. You can grow cut flowers too by taking inspiration from the dazzling varieties recommended in this article. Sweet peas will provide trailing plants and aromatic flowers month after month whilst Begonias will give a vision of a full, luxurious plant. Both plants are easy to grow from a seedling.
Sweetpea seeds are small round hardy balls which will benefit from being soaked in water overnight before sowing. They are happiest living indoors during the colder months. This will enable them to grow and prevent them from getting leggy. I adore sweet peas and grow them myself. This year I have been booked to style a wedding with sweet peas. I am growing some new seeds at present and purchased them from Seedlynx. Seedlynx specializes in sweetpea seeds.

I will be growing a colourful pallet of Begonia Flowers this February from seed. These beauties may even inspire me to start up my monthly newsletters. The Begonia is a little expensive but produces a stunning flower. Begonia tubers can be purchased online or from a local flower nursery. Champagne is a really nice colour.
Snapdragon, otherwise known as Antirrhinum come in an assortment of colours. The antirrhinum can grow up to 36 inches tall. Sow seedlings in March for colourful blossoms. Snapdragons have a special place in my heart as they were one of my Mums favourite flowers to grow. Last year I grew yellow ones from seedling, so bright and fragrant.
Another favourite flower of mine. Dahlias are often quicker and easier to grow from tubers but they are an excellent colourful investment for the garden. Keep them dry and warm over the winter and plant in March for a dashing show in the late summer. Pom Pom Dahlia are shown in my main image but there are dozens of varieties to choose from.
A real tongue twister here but the crazy daisy variety is my absolute favourite to watch grow. Crazy Daisy is bright, vibrant and fun. Chrysanthemum is easy to come by and will be found in all garden centres.
I hope you are inspired to choose at least one of my suggestions to grow. Watching a seedling transform upon a bright window ledge in the kitchen is always a rewarding way to start your day.
