Fuengirola, Spain (PressExposure) March 18, 2011 -- March in the garden is a time of new beginnings, buds on many trees, shrubs and flowers are beginning to push through, the bulbs we lovingly planted in the cold of winter now show their pretty heads above ground, to warming soil.
Each Spring when we see beautiful garden plants, and shrubs it is a new beginning, for the novice gardener all the mistakes of the last planting season have gone, we now have a feel for our plot what works and what does not, certain plants that look good together, and we have a whole year of gardening to experiment with such as using bedding plants, to plant in containers, or using them as great hanging basket plants.
This time of the year plants and flowers come into their own, Mothering Sunday is just around the corner on April the 3rd, plants and flowers put a smile on any Mother's face, what more beautiful than giving the beloved Mother a garden shrub, or a tree to plant in the garden, something that will last over the years as a reminder of precious times shared together.
Easter Sunday traditionally is a time for egg giving, there is nothing to stop you giving something different, maybe a perennial plant, or one of the species of Lavender plants, which not only smell good, also encourage bees and butterflies, but can be used to show off culinary skills.
What tells us it is spring? maybe the daffodils, green shoots, the first blossom, and a most wondrous sight is a heavily laden magnolia, with its furred buds and milky petals which burst forth sometime in March, the whole garden comes alive from March, and any gardener will tell you that all the hard work put in seeding, and sowing is all worth it.
Gardening is a bug that most people are bitten by at some stage, no matter what area you are working, be it a window box or a huge garden the satisfaction of growing plants knows no bounds.
A family-run horticultural business based on the beautiful floral island of Jersey is Blooming Direct, and a spokesman for the business said, "yes Mother's day is a very busy time for us, especially on the cut flower side, but more and more people are looking for gifts that are out of the ordinary, especially if there is a budding gardener in the family, who does not like beautiful plants and flowers?, and our customers can be confident that all products purchased from our nursery will arrive on the doorstep in pristine condition", he went on to say "our website offers everything for the garden and more, every plant is delivered in plug plant format, to give your garden a head start, and more importantly all orders shipped to the UK are free".
The secret in a beautiful garden is forward planning hard work, understanding what you like and making the right choices, let this year be new beginnings for how your garden grows.
