March Hedgerows

During March the daytime temperatures climb above 10°C once more and hedgerows are covered with familiar spring flowers – primrose, lesser celandine, violets. Only a handful of plants flower at this time, overnight frosts are still common. By the end of the month the distinctive flowers of Hawthorn and Willow cover the bare twigs and branches of the hedges.
