End of month view of the Garden – March 2019
With thanks to Helen at the Patient Gardener for originally hosting this meme.
The Month of March started with a light dusting of snow. We had occasional frosts and were visited by storm Freya and Gareth.

As the month commenced the weather settled down, and plants started to grow.

The shortest month of the year is over, we have experienced frost, and hot sunny days… however not much rain fell.
A tale of two temperatures
It was a tale of two temperatures, frosty nights followed by sunny days.
The RHS Chatsworth Flower Show 2018
After last years issues with Traffic and flooding of areas, I was eager to see what measures were in place to avoid last year’s problems, I needn’t have worried, the car parks were assessable from 8am, there were basic toilets in the cars parks, which is handy for visitors like me who like to get in and park up early, there were lots of Hi-vis’d stewards pointing and waving you into your parking place, there were many golf buggies and shuttle buses were zooming around to help everybody who needed help to get to and from the show entrance from the furthest car parks, I was also delighted to see that both the floral pavilions were now erected on modular flooring, so anybody with mobility issues could easily get about no matter how much it rained.
