Plants Of The Month - March

Primula vulgaris

 
A wonderful reliable plant, the native primrose has been used to treat paralysis, cramps, gout and rheumatic aches and pains.The name comes from latin and literally translates to ‘first rose’. It is always a welcome sight in spring, although it is not as common as it once was. Once widely distributed throughout wooded areas and hedgerows in the UK, the temptation to pick the sweetly scented, pale yellow flowers has proved too strong, and sadly this has resulted in their decline.

Eranthis hyemalis

 

It is a brilliant alternative to the snowdrop or plant with it. It will flower just as early, but it spreads by underground rhizomes to form generous sized clumps in half the time. Plant lots of it to create natural-looking groundcover in woodland or rock gardens, or let it naturalise in grass.

Magnolia stellata
 
 

It is one of the most compact Magnolias, so it’s not too hard to find a spot for it – even in the smallest garden. It is also quite slow growing, so will be more than happy in a good-sized pot for many years.
