impressed with the hellebores Berghill ours aren't doing anything yet do you take the leaves off?
Having said a few days ago that nothing was happening in the garden there are now tiny green shoots of snowdrops, daffodils and hyacinths and one white Christmas rose is flowering and a pink one has buds. Looking forward to the magnolia Leonard Messel flowering, it has buds now. Here it is last year.
BusyL it looks wonderful.
Oh Busy lizie I had one of those as a mothers day present last year. It looks lovely - how long has it taken to mature to that stage? There are a few buds.
I've had it 12 years, but it hasn't changed much in the last 3 years.
wow busyL lovely pic we have a leonard messel, bought with vouchers 5 years ago and i have had to nurture it. The slugs/snails eat the buds and then last year all the buds dropped in feb/march time. I put it in copper planter a few years ago and this seems to have tackled the molluscs it's in a big glazed pot now as I didn't want to risk the ground i'll look forward to better flowers this year
This reminded me that I was sure we had bought one. Searched through the boss's diary and yes we had. Fortunately she had also written down where i had planted it. Still took some finding though. Looking healthy. Now if only I could find the M. Yellow Birs I planted around the same time.
Amd Budlia63, I will be taking the leaves off the H. x orientalis in a few weeks time, weather permitting. The other types do not need that kind of treatment.
Lily louise i have just watched your video tour of your garden and I am sick with envy!!
will go back and look at all the other pics now
Happy New Year
I have resolved to take photos of garden on 1st of every month. Don't know if I will be able to keep it up. Rmember it is a new garden!
This is wonderful all year. In the past dark days it blows and ripples in the wind. I have loads of it.
This is Fairy Dell. Very much work in progress but hopefully will be completed, as much as any part of a garden is, by late spring
