Some of the best plants for March are:
1 Akebia quinata – a climber with a chocolate scent
2 Bergenias in Pinks or whites
3 Various Chaenomeles (flowering quince) but mind their thorns
4 The amazing contorted stems of Corylus avellana ‘Contorta’ or the more unusual Corylus avellana ‘Contorta’ with pink catkins and bronze leaves
5 Nothing can beat the scent of Daphne odora ‘Aureomarginata’.

Some jobs to do in March:
1 Protect new spring shoots from slugs
2 Plant summer-flowering bulbs
3 Top dress containers with fresh compost to add nutrients
4 Cut back Cornus (dogwood) and Salix (willow) grown for colourful winter stems
