the end of the month, the hardier winter-flowering bulbs will show their
faces and let you know that Spring is approaching. Snowdrops, winter
aconites, cyclamen coum and crocus ancyrensis can all be relied on for
winter colour. Click
here for more information on planting and flowering times.
For scent as well
as flowers, winter honeysuckle (lonicera fragrantissima), several of the
viburnum and the beautiful mahonia japonica will do the job.
Winter jasmine (jasminum
nudiflorum), viburnum tinus and the hellebores are shrubs that also
provide colour in mid-winter.
must also include a mention of winter flowering garden pansies.
