February Garden Highlights

February has been a bit of a dull month in our garden. The weather has been rubbish and our heavy clay has been freezing cold and sodden. Mostly, all I have achieved is a small amount of weeding and stuck in a few nerines which I was given by my mother-in-law. Not sure they will like our soil, but I dug plenty of compost in and made sure to plant them only just below the surface so am really hoping they will survive. I'm not really that great as a gardener. That is pretty much as much love and attention as they will ever receive and if they can't survive on their own well, quite frankly its tough luck. Anything that thrives on neglect will do very nicely, everything else will slowly wither... and then I'll forget what it is I planted in that spot, and that will be the end of that. Anyway, here's the highlights:


  1. Hellebores are very hardy and will completely do their own thing - at least in my garden they will! They self-seed and I don't do a damn thing with them.

  2. Excellent, that is exactly my kind of plant!
