Winter is all about preparation for summer whilst enjoying what beauty the garden has to offer in the cold months. This weeks I'm planting pineapples and dates and enjoying snowdrops.
As we move into the winter it's harder to find beautiful things in the garden. This week I'm focussing on feeding birds over the winter months, digging up dahlias, ordering seeds and eyeing veg for winter comfort food.
This week I take a visit to the greenhouse to show some plants that are providing late colour and winter interest - an explosion of Chrysanthemums, a glowing salvia and a sand box of tiny alpine delights.
This week I bought some ferns for my woodland garden. Evergreen or deciduous, frilly or flat leaved, acid green or moss-coloured I hadn't realised how diverse they are. Some named after feathers and other lace, here are my favourite six.
