Merry Christmas 2016!



Dear all

Just a very quick post to wish everyone a great Christmas and a happy break and to remind everyone that now it’s winter it’s time to celebrate all the lovely evergreens that lift our spirits in December and January, hiding almost unpraised for most of the year, now is there moment to shine!

Clematis cirrhosa flowering happily in the December sunshine…


Convolvulus cneorum, a new silvery addition to my garden…


Good old stalwart, Sarcococca – a particularly fine leaved form Sarcococca ruscifolia var.chinensias ‘Dragon Gate’, discovered by Roy Lancaster.


Lovely medieval Myrtle, with it’s lovely purpley tinge.


And bamboo and Yukka and rosemary soldiering on…


and my dear old Astelia.


Merry Christmas and a happy gardening new year!
