The garden in February

Thanks to the unusually warm weather work has started in the garden. The 2 specimens of lavatera ‘Barnsley’ have been cut back (one month earlier than last year). The lawn has been mown for the first time this year.

A visit to two of my favourite garden centers/nurseries has resulted in the purchase of the following specimens:

  • Heuchera ‘Chocolate Ruffles’ : 1 specimen to replace the one probably eaten up by Vine Weevil.
  • Clematis ‘Early Sensation’, hoping it will survive if warm winters continue.
  • Camellia ‘Buttons & Bows’, with its lovely pink flowers
  •  Carex oshimensis ‘Eversheen’
  • Vinca minor ‘Alba’
  • Iberis sempervivens
  • Nandina domestica ‘Brightlight’
