It's the middle of March, - but here in Surrey although the sun has finally come out, there are very few plants that think it's spring. Looking through the list of Garden Bloggers on the May Dream Gardens website, my flowers in bloom are more like Zone 5 or 6 rather than the zone 9 which we would normally be equivalent too. Lets hope for more sun this week.
Last month, the only thing flowering in the whole garden was the Sarcococca and the Snowdrops
The Sarcococca is still giving whiffs of fragrance, but now there are a few tiny colourful flowers joining them.
There are several cyclamen coum flowering, - I planted these as corms in the Autumn, which I don't usually recommend as they are better in the green, so i'm hoping these will bulk up over the coming years.
This is one of only 3 narcissus up so far. The stems are very short, - i'm hoping that the later ones will be better, or I won't be entering anything for the Horticultural show at the end of the month.
So all in all, - Could do better is the verdict for March Bloom Day, - i'll go away and plan for next year.
