Crammed into a pot and pumping our perfume near the front door. Gorgeous and uplifting.
2. Cyclamen and snowdrops
The perfect late winter combo. Taken a year or two to establish but now running riot. Scented? If I could get down that low I’d never get back up.
Been flowering for weeks but even the old flower heads are beautiful. A real no-nonsense plant happy in the dappled shade under the ornamental cherries.
4. Potatoes quietly chitting
Spuds quietly developing shoots in the relative warmth of the greenhouse. It’s frost free and light in there – perfect to get the spuds started.
Oh my goodness – I will never tire of looking at this auricula. In the greenhouse, frost free and more importantly protected from excessive moisture. Flowering on and off for months. Just beautiful.
Bunged in a pot last autumn and forgotten about. But now in flower! Always cheery on cold winter days.
