In March gardens really start to come back to life so, after the lethargic winter months, take the opportunity to get out there and enjoy some early sunshine and a bit of gardening – it is a great way to blow away the cobwebs and enjoy that spring-time magic with golden daffodils, buds starting to open and everything literally wakening up around you. Whether it is planting, seed sowing or weeding, anything done now makes your garden look better for the months ahead.

An excitement-filled month as spring-flowering bulbs start to appear – the early daffodils, crocus and snowdrops, winter aconites & more. You can buy small pots of these now and they’ll provide colour for years to come at this time of year. But make a note to buy more, but as bulbs in the autumn too, so there will be even more to enjoy next year. Wrap up well and take time to sit in your own garden and visit larger gardens too – they’re a perfect source of inspiration and ideas which you can bring back home!

The weather may be icy cold, your plants decorated with frost but that doesn’t mean there is no reason to go into the garden. It is a great time to do some clearing and tidying and to get on with some planning. Look at the garden now and you’ll find it easier to see its ‘bare bones’ or structure – and where it could do with some gaps filling. How about winter-flowering shrubs such as the deliciously perfumed witch hazels with their wacky, almost spidery flowers in rich reds, oranges and yellows or winter bedding to brighten up containers of flower beds?

Choose a beautiful, bright, crisp December day to do some gardening and you’ll be amazed at how much you can achieve and how good it makes you feel. As long as the soil is not too wet, it is a great time to do heavier gardening jobs like digging and maybe even building a garden arch or arbour and you can often get a lot more done without the sun beating down. You’ll be surprised by how refreshing even a shortish burst of gardening can be , especially at a time of year when you might otherwise have been flopped out indoors!

Winter may be just around the corner, but there is still a lot to enjoy in your garden as there should still be some good autumn foliage colour and brightly coloured berries not to mention autumn flowers. As your garden inches towards its slower-moving, wintry state don’t forget that you can still keep planting on all but wet soils and so ensure that there are more and more plants to enjoy for years to come. Fallen leaves may need raking, late weeds may need hoeing off or pulling out and faded foliage may need removing too, but there really is nothing like fresh air and gardening to lift your spirits!
