A combination of Tulips and Ornamental Cabbage/Kale. Too late for this year but may be worth a try in a corner of your garden next year. We have to plan ahead!!


Here are just a couple of images of reticulata type Iris showing their faces, in spite of the wet and now cold down here in the ‘frozen south’.  No snow in Dorchester however. Both are Avon Bulbs supplied.

They are : Iris ’Spot On’  (the purple one with interesting white throat markings)  &   Iris ‘Katharine Hodgkin’ – Colin White


Spring is on the way


Nature has a habit of throwing up surprises, this plant appeared growing in the crack between 2 upright paving slabs that act as a retaining wall. Over this winter it has put on a spurt of growth and is now about to flower. I have no idea how it set its seed in that spot but is obviously happy and a welcome addition to the garden. I think the plant is Helleborus argutifolius but I am sure if I am wrong one of you will be kind enough to let me know. – Pat Orme
