February to March
Snowdrops and Hellebores
Depending on the mildness/severity of the winter weather, February should be the month for snowdrops to come out and be looking their best. If it has been mild, crocus and hellebores should also be putting on a good display. Daphne Bholua 'Jaqueline Postill' continues to flower, together with the later forms of mahonia, hamamelis, the sweetly scented sarcococcas and winter-flowering viburnums. At ground level there are early primulas and some primroses, Iris stylosa, Narcissus 'Tete a Tete' and chionodoxa. It's a very exciting time as the garden begins to wake up and show signs of promising things to come. Early March heralds the start of special woodland plants such as erythroniums, fritillaries and narcissus and so much more appearing every day.
