Winter Garden

Winter GardenIn between the wet and snow this weekend, we managed to grab a couple of hours in the Winter Garden- William gave me a beautiful snakebark  Acer and a really posh Magnolia sieboldii  the other day, so we shuffled a few plants around and have planted them amongst the fiery stemmed Cornus ‘Midwinter Fire’ and between an Acer griseum and a burgundy barked Euonymus europeus.

I’m so pleased with the new border- all coppery tones with Hammamelis ‘Diane’, Bergenia, Carex comans,  and  I spread snowdrops around in between. In fact looking along the border through to the goat paddock even the goats tone in with their rusty coloured coats!!
