Plant of the Month – March – Chionodoxa
March 10, 2017 by James Cooper
What a punchy little plant we have this month, the Chionodoxa Forbesii. It may be small but that vibrant sky blue is like a shot in the arm during this early spring dullness, when the garden is still waking up.
Plant this bulb during the autumn in well drained soil where it will get plenty of sun. We like to group them with Primrose and Snowdrops which will all flower together.
Because this bulb is early flowering it is useful to place around plants which are late risers, such as Hostas and ferns. Also bear in mind that because it is quite small position them nearer to a window or a path you use during the early springtime.
