March

(Revised 6Jan 2016)
Although it can be snow free by the beginning of March here, but I accept that most of March is normally wintry. Without conifers and somewhat cleaned perennial beds, the garden can be ‘unsightly’.
It is not totally hopeless. Apart from conifers, plants of interest in my garden include heathers, Hamamelis, and toward the end of March, Iris reticulata, and Helleborus.

Plants of interest in March:

-Trees with interesting barks
– Calluna (varieties that have colourful leaves in March and April)
– Conifers (especially those with some colours)
– Crocus
– Erica (varieties that bloom in March and April)
– Hamamelis
– Helleborus
– Heuchera
– Iris reticulata
