Snowdrop Walk - East Anglia

Snowdrop Walk - East Anglia

Posted: 27/01/2014 at 18:27

Hi all easterners

I think we're looking (provisionally) at the weekend of 8th/9th. How would that suit everyone? if it turns very cold possibly the next one. 

This weekend is too soon, fortunately, as my car will still be off its wheels.

You can check out the snowdrop updates on the link.

All subject to everyone's agreement, just a starting point.

I'll PM anyone who showed an interest if they don't respond on the thread

Hi ragdoll

Cotoneaster lacteus is big and evergreen and easy going. Also laurel. If you have the width of garden these can both be left to grow without any pruning. The cotoneaster is looking very goodat the moment with its red berries. The birds will have them soon.

Eleagnus ebbingei as well, evergreen, beautifully scented flowers in autumn.

If you have the room lots of shrubs can just be left to grow without cutting back. The ones I've mentioned can be found at any garden centre

Are slugs still about?

Something is eating plants here as well. last year half my hellebores lost their heads and this year some corydalis, a large dandelion and assorted other perennials have been nibbled. I suspect mammal. I haven't decided which one yet. Last year I thought muntjac, but I'm not sure I'm right.
