I am getting married at this time of year in our backyard and I was thinking hydrangeas but have been told they will no longer be flowering by March. Do you have any suggestions?

Congratulations on getting married. You must be so excited. Hydrangea is summer flowering so hopefully there will still be some flowers left on your bushes in March. If some of them have browned off, just prune off those 'spent' flowers. Gardenias should still be flowering. Roses will also still be flowering. French Lavender tends to flower most of the year also. Native shrubs such as Grevillea, Kangaroo Paw give a good display in the garden and flower over a long period of time. There are a number of annuals that will still be flowering such as Petunia, Marigold, Salvia, Dianthus, Carnation and snapdragon. Have a lovely, lovely day on your wedding.
