The careful insect ‘midst his work I view,
ow from the flowers exhaust the fragrant dew,
With golden treasures loads his little thighs,
And steer his distant journey through the skies.
(John Gay, Rural Sports)
Well, we’re already six months in to our gardening year here at Green Art, which seems a perfect time to reflect a few of the current gardening trends.
While February was all about getting things ready, March is when it all starts to happen. Snowdrops are abundant, Hellebores are adding subtle colour and bright crocuses are popping up all over the place alongside the first daffodils. The hedgerows are starting to green up, often with the pale yellow of native primroses nestling below.
