Look out for ones which have been given an AGM (Award of Garden Merit) by the RHS. Obviously these plants are the best types.
Not so long ago I went round and counted our Magnolias. I found 13 so we had to go out and buy another one. Then I found one I had missed,so now we have 15.
Buy one in flower. We got one labelled Wadas's Memory which is a lovely white. Ours flowered purple!. Too late to return it even if we could remember where we bought it.
Susan for me too. Always covered in flowers and from an early age too.
First time we have seen one in the garden, so very pleased to manage to get a picture. It does not hang around for very long.
Well done Clarice. I meant to start this like I did last year, but never got round to it.
Narcissus January King
And a Nuthatch to finish with.
Giving in to social convention at last eh?
In all the ears of watching TV programmes about gardening I cannot remember one being dedicated to indoor plants. House plants or Conservatory ones that is, not greenhouse ones.
Not that it would be any good to us as we have not got any.
No, sorry, just see the flash of red berries when we go past.
There is also a mixed coloured,low hedge of this in Oswestry which is a fairly cold part of the West Midlands, so it should be ok in any aspect in the I.O.M.
Leaves wrong for Celandine and even with the mild weather ours is only just beginning to show leaves.
There is a fabulous Pyracantha free standing hedge on the side of a road we often drive along.near to Bridgemere Garden Centre, so I suppose that it is possible. Problem as far as I can see is that it is terribly prone to Fireblight, so could succumb if there is any in the area,
