March 2004



March is such a pretty time with the garden greening up and looking fresh and bright. Little pockets of colour are emerging in the main border and the hellebore bed continues to shine with pulmonarias and veronica amongst the hellebores and daffodils. See Sheldon enjoying it (below centre!)

Grape hyacinths and large daffodils planted by the garden's previous owner, have been incorporated into my planting schemes whilst the smaller narcissi I prefer (such as Jenny in the Hellebore bed) continue their show.

The middle of the month sees the blue  chinodoxas, which line the Calm Corner path, in full bloom. Yellow and white Iris bucharica (below left) and yellow aconites also brighten up the Duck Garden.

Shrubs such as skimmias, pieris and viburnum are in flower and elsewhere, primroses, violets and forget-me-nots mark the beginning of spring!
