March 1st 2015
The steady march into spring continues, with an increasing number of plants waking up, despite the overnight frosts. A few years ago we planted a Garrya Elliptica, a medium sized shrub with winter interest. It took a while to settle into its new home, and to grow to its present height of about 6 feet, but this winter it has really started to pay its way. It has long katkin-like tassels which flower in winter and early spring. As the season moves on, the flowers on the tassels open progressively, so the display becomes more and more impressive. Ours is about thirty metres from the windows, and demands attention with its plentiful show.
The snowdrops continue to open out, as do the few crocuses we have. Our daughter has a bold display of winter aconites, which reminded me that that is a plant I want to use in the shade beds, where its bright yellow blooms will be a cheerful addition to the winter garden. Many bulbs are now well through, with daffodil bud plumping up and preparing to turn over ready to open in a few weeks. Some of the deciduous shrubs are also getting close, with leaf show on a lot of branches. We have one rose remaining from the previous owner, which continues flowering until Christmas. It now requires major pruning to allow the new growth. We usually cut it right down to about nine inches above the ground. It then rewards us with continuous flowering from mid summer.
