This month look out for the stunning displays put on by the following two plants.

Hawthorn

Known as the Fairy Tree, this tree should be treated with great respect. Often seen along hedgerows at roadsides; it offers a wonderful burst of brightness in the sunshine.


Forsythia

Named after the horticulturalist, William Forsyth, the Forsythia is one of the first shrubs to flower in the Spring. The fruits of one species of the shrub are used in traditional Chinese medicine, treating cold and flu symptoms.
