The Delargo Gardens - March

Here we again me dears at the end of our second March in this incarnation of the 'Gardens of Delargo Towers'

A mild month on the whole but with a few frost and a couple of storms. The plastic greenhouse we bought back in 2014 blew over so many time it is now in a skip.

Safe indoors our cymbidium orchid decided to flower, This is only the second time it has done so in the 21 years that I have known this plant !

We have a few stunners in the garden too.

Chionodoxa forbesii

Tulipa humilis 'Persian Pearl'

Ipheion 'Jessie'

As well as our old reliables...

Anemone blanda

Eranthis hyemalis (Winter aconite):

Erysimum cheiri (Wallflower):

Hyacinth 'Royal Navy':

...along with the pansies

and of course Daffs

With almost everything in pots, there is a lot to do to prepare for the Spring proper and the log awaited Summer to come.

Not every thing is in pots, and this year we intend to work on what little bits of soil that we have.

As well as sowing seeds and buying the odd newbie or two.

A busy time ahead, methinks.
Roll on Spring.
