Spring in the Garden – update
Early spring is one of my favourite times in the garden. Everything is bursting into life and there is so much promise of things still to come.
I have received a few images from Caley Council members, Jasmin Cann and Colin Ainsworth this week that show the diversity in flower colour, shape and growth patterns that are in the garden right now. The Hellebores, traditionally thought of as a plant for winter interest, are still looking great at the moment and the spring flowering plants are really coming into their own.
Hopefully, you have a bit of outside space you can escape to but, if not, enjoy these images.
Unfortunately, I don’t have the names of the hellebores at the moment but I will endeavour to find out. If anyone can identify the Primula, Colin will be very grateful. He thinks it is a Cowichan Series but lost the label in a recent house move.
Update: Jasmin has updated me on the names of the hellebores. Unfortunately, she only had the name for one. The yellow one is called ‘Queen Yellow’. Her advice is to always buy hellebores in flower. They are very promiscuous and hybridise freely so there are many variations. The single pink spotted white came from Binny Plants, who always have an excellent range to chose from. Binny Plants do have an online shop and can send your plants to you.
