February Notes

Heralding spring are the emerging snowdrops. They are so welcome especially after the long dark days. These tolerant flowers withstand wind and heavy rain, provided they are protected by deciduous trees.  Varieties here include Sir Herbert Maxwell, and Galanthus rizehensis.  

In the walled garden the air is filled with the delicious fragrance of DAPHNE BOHOLUA, Jacqueline Postill. This  pink flowering shrub, with its almost evergreen leaves, is such a delight to the senses. It is underplanted with emerging Hellebores , and then when  their leaves are cut away they  will show off their purple/white speckled petaled flowers.
