Primroses start to flower in February and are commonly found on sunny banks and in open woodland. Another woodland plant beginning to flower is Dog’s Mercury, often overlooked as its flowers are small and light green. The yellow flowers of Lesser Celandine appear along hedgerows and Alder catkins will be turning yellow in February.
