Today on March 1st, we went looking for signs of spring and found some!
Magnolia x loebneri ‘Merrill’ (Loebner magnolia) As we await the star-like blossoms of Merrill magnolia, we can admire the buds as they form on this very hardy tree which will eventually mature to some 40ft.
In the Westview Terrace:
Helleborus niger ‘Maximus’ (Christmas rose); these ever-popular semi-evergreen perennials are must have’s for any late winter garden. For weeks now Maximus has pushed its head through the frozen ground, waiting to unfurl its pink-flushed white flowers.
Erica carnea ‘Golden Starlet’ (Spring heath) New buds are forming on Golden Starlet heath, one of many varieties in the TBG collection.
