March is here and Spring is in the air!
Hopefully the worst of the stormy weather is over and we can start to really look forward to Spring. I’ve seen so many greenhouses lifted up, up and away plus polytunnels ripped to shreds, it’s been a tough time for gardeners. I hope your garden survived the storms and you are raring to get gardening again.
Before Spring kicks off, take some time to really enjoy the last of the late winter flowers. Hellebores are such beauties, albeit a little shy, so I tend to cut away some of the foliage allowing the flowers to take their moment in the spotlight. The most wonderful sights across Norfolk at this time of year has to be the carpets of Snowdrops at places like Walsingham Abbey, Hoveton Hall and out on walks around the city. One of the most expensive Snowdrops ever was sold on eBay for £1,850! The variety was ‘Golden Tears’ and my only thought was…I hope they keep it alive!
As the Snowdrops fade, spring bulbs will be popping up and there is nothing more uplifting than spotting Daffodils and Tulips. There are some absolutely beautiful varieties along the river opposite the Jarrold Mill in Norwich. It’s definitely worth taking a walk down there to see them.
If you haven’t given your garden a mulch, there is still time to get some well rotted garden compost down or try Plant Grow which I what I use on my allotment. Feed the soil and the soil will make sure your plants thrive.
