March Gardening Checklist for Zones 4 and 5

Vegetable Growing Calendar

  • In early March, you can plant pepper seeds indoors.
  • In late March, plant seeds of tomatillos, eggplants, ground cherries, herbs, and green onions indoors. Broccoli and Brussel sprouts for early planting can also be started inside.
  • If growing under lights, ensure that the lights are 5-10 centimetres at most above the seedlings to avoid weak and spindly plants. Seedlings in windows need the best light available.
