We love March • “Beware the ides of March” was the dire warning delivered to Julius Caesar by a soothsayer as he strolled through the forum (according to Shakespeare). The ides is the 15th of this month and it could – being March, that most fickle of months – go either way for gardeners. It could be Siberian with icy blasts and winds that slice through even the thickest coats or it could be unseasonably balmy with trees unwisely teetering on the precipice of premature flowering. Who knows? Whichever way you look at it, the ides of March is dangerous even without Brutus, Cassius et al running around trying to stab you!
