January Bloomers

Witch Hazel Wm


Cold weather is forecast, but don’t despair.

This week’s sunshine prompted a stroll around the garden with a camera and there’s already plenty to see. The Witch Hazel above is still in its pot, purchased on a recent visit to the RHS garden at Rosemoor. I am a sucker for these. This one, Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Robert’, has a spicy scent and will have leaves that turn red in the autumn.


Snowdrops Wm


The snowdrops were coming out there too


Hellebore Wm


Back at home I have hellebores


Primrose Wm




Skimmia Wm




Pulmonaria Wm




Camellia Wm


And with a bit of luck, it should be an excellent year for Camellia. They like a wet summer in the year before flowering!

As long as the buds get through next week’s frosts, I should be OK.
