The Delargo Gardens - March

 Here we are me Darlins, March is over, the clocks have gone forward and Spring Has Sprung.

The 1st of the month was St Davis's Day so we kick off with the Daffs.

As you know me Dears, every thing here is pots so this year we decided only to grow Tête á Tête'

 Our crocus were fab but are over now

But we have some other Spring bulbs to carry on their good work. 'Ipheion uniflorum'


 This is a lovely early little Tulip with a big flower -  'Giuseppe Verdi'

Now my lovelies, I wish you could smell the Hyacinths they are divine.

Anemone De Caen is a scruffy plant but the flowers are so jolly

The Primulas have been giving us colour all winter are still going strong;

As are the pansies and Violas

The Cyclamen are still going too

The people carrier has arrived so let's jump on it for a tour of the extensive grounds here at 'Delargo Towers'

Last years bulbs did well up in the 'Top Field'

We have almost finished repotting the big pots

Once we have done that we can play 'Tetris' with them to find the best positions for them.

My Sunny 'wine time' spot

The majority of the Fuchsias have started into growth and we haven't given up on the others yet

 The back passage is full of Colour

as is the front.

More bulb refugees from last year

This Cherry Tree in our street it's looking amazing so we took a snap of it

Now me dears, do you remember the Begonia tubers I showed you in the last post, all shrivelled and dead looking. Well this is them now

The Dahlias are romping away too.

Just in flower in the last few days of the month we have the return of our jolly Anemone blanda.

And the first flowers on the main crop Tulips. There are 24 jammed into that pot !

This little chap has decided to move in and live in the Hyacinth

Well there tiz me lovelies a tad late but there has been a lot to do in the garden, including sitting the sun with a glass of wine and some easy listening music.

Till next time It's -
