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

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.
