What to do/best plants-January

What to do in the Garden now?

If you don’t fancy being outside and digging that heavy soil (which is actually a good idea in winter!) Now is a good time to order seed catalogues, to select next year’s bedding and perennial choices. You have more chance of finding everything you want if you order well before the spring.

Plants looking great in January:
1 Clematis cirrhosa var.purpurascens ‘Freckles’
2 Mahonia × media ‘Charity’
3 Sarcococcas
4 Winter pansies for vibrant colour
5 Garrya elliptica for interesting hanging tassels of flowers
6 Many Viburnums eg: Viburnum tinus ‘Lisa Rose’
7 Many Helleborus (the ‘Christmas Rose’)
