Free Vegetable Seeds for March: Growing Delicious Tomatoes and More


Spring is here, and it’s time to start planting seeds for your summer garden. If you’re looking for free seeds, Gardeners’ World Magazine has you covered. This year, they’re giving away a variety of edible seeds, including ‘Sun Baby’ cherry tomatoes. These bright yellow tomatoes are perfect for salads and snacks, and they’re easy to grow in pots or in the ground.

Growing ‘Sun Baby’ Cherry Tomatoes

To start your tomato seeds indoors, sow them in small pots filled with seed starting mix. Keep the soil moist but not soggy, and place the pots in a warm, sunny spot. The seeds should germinate in about a week.

Once the seedlings have emerged, transplant them into individual pots. Grow them on in a sunny spot until they’re about 4 inches tall. Then, harden them off by gradually exposing them to the outdoors before planting them in the garden.

Growing Rocket

Rocket is another easy-to-grow vegetable that’s perfect for salads. To grow rocket, sow the seeds directly in the garden or in pots. Thin the seedlings to about 2-3 inches apart. Rocket doesn’t like to have its roots disturbed, so be careful when transplanting.

Harvesting and Storing Tomatoes

Tomatoes are ripe when they’re fully red and slightly soft to the touch. To harvest tomatoes, simply twist them off the vine. Tomatoes can be stored at room temperature for a few days, or in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Tips for Growing Vegetables from Seed

  • Start your seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost.
  • Use a good quality seed starting mix.
  • Keep the soil moist but not soggy.
  • Provide plenty of sunlight.
  • Harden off seedlings before transplanting them outdoors.

With a little care and attention, you can grow a bountiful harvest of vegetables from seed. So get started today, and enjoy the fruits of your labor all summer long!
