Heard about the gardens down south with lots of plants in bloom? I can't match that in York but I am still very pleased to see flowers on the following plants (which I'm sure other northerners can add to!); Anemone, Erysimum, several Hebe, Cyclamen, Osteospermum, Quince, plus the wonderful winter catkins on Garrya elliptica and nodding blooms on Hellebores. All these in addition to berries on the Cotoneaster, beautiful young leaves on Eucalyptus and the evergreen Pittosporum keep the garden full of interest even at this stage of winter, in the lead up to Christmas. Seasons Greetings to everyone!
