GBBD 15/02/2010 – Spring is nearly here
Whilst the garden is burgeoning and there are plump buds appearing every day there is still very little actually in flower for me to show you on this February GBBD. My favourite at the moment is the beautiful Hellebore above. I bought it 2 years ago from Ashwood Nurseries and it didn’t flower at all last year so I am thrilled that the plant has lots of fat buds on it.
February is definately the month for snowdrops. I have heard people say the snowdrops are late this year but I dont think mine are any later than this time last year, however two years ago I had daffodils in flower at this point.
While I was hunting around the garden for something in flower I was really pleased to spot this Primula making a valiant effort. Spring proper shouldn’t be too long now.
Winter Aconite is still shining away in the border. The plant has been here for a couple of years now but hasn’t really started to spread yet, though no doubt when it does I will wish it hadn’t.
