More from Gardeners' World magazine

Welcome

We love March • We should be under no illusions that the bad weather has passed, for the balminess of this morning could easily turn into a tempest by teatime. However, there is plenty of cause for optimism and if I was a cute furry animal, then this is the month when I would be peering out from my snuggly nest and wondering if it was worth wrenching myself from hibernation and going out for a bit of a wander. All around there are bulbs bursting, shoots popping, buds breaking and the very first scattering of colour fexing its muscles and dressing for spring.

Bergenias • Grow these perennials for their vibrant winter foliage and prolific spring blooms, says Graham Rice

30 FREE* perennials for every reader • Take inspiration from Monty’s feature this month, and plant this collection to support pollinators. The beautiful blooms have been selected to flower in succession from late spring until autumn, meaning these beneficial creatures will benefit the entire growing season.

The Full Monty • Animals are a natural part of our gardens, but whether they are pets or ‘pests’, the pleasure they give far outweighs any pain, says Monty

Have your say • The view from your side of the fence

Clippings • Our roundup of the month’s latest gardening news and views

My gardening world Michael Morpurgo • Sir Michael Morpurgo is among the UK’s best-loved writers, author of children’s classics such as War Horse. He lives in Devon with his wife Clare, growing vegetables and singing to blackbirds. His latest books, The Birthday Duck and A Song of Gladness, are out now.
