My Winter Garden

butimbeautiful

Winter, well officially it starts in three days. – can you believe that!

Long cold nights, short drab days.

Well no. There are still many sunny days to be enjoyed, and definitely not drab. Not in my garden. A garden can be colourful all year round.

For colour in both autumn and winter my favourite are camellias. With the backdrop of rich green  leaves their prolific floral display is spectacular. They are one of the most versatile plants for any size garden. The sasanqua variety is blooming right now. The flowers just keep on coming. They create a pale pink petal carpet that enriches the soil. I keep them pruned nice and tight, water when dry but, once established, they reward without too much extra care.

This season the buds on my japonica camellias are so prolific, must be the ash from the January bushfires. Good to see a benefit…
