Winter Garden

December 2, 2012

The garden is soggy and slimy after all the rain here in Wales, but thankfully we haven’t been flooded. We’ve had a sudden show of winter flowering jasmine over the door to the ‘shed’ where I work. I really recommend this shrub, it requires almost no attention except clipping back about once a year. Also my fatsia japonica is going great guns, with2012-11-25 13.20.25 pretty candle-like flowers.  I pick these at Christmas to use for a table decoration with some baubles,etc.  Again, just needs pruning now and then, very easy to do as the wood is very soft. The only drawback to this shrub is that in summer, flies seem to gather on it, but if you cut it right back, shouldn’t be a problem.
