SPRING FAVORITES

As the garden is waking up  and the crocusses, snowdrops and narcisses have gone, other plants are taking over. Three of my favorite Spring plants are starting to bloom.

SKIMMIA JAPONICA KEW GREEN IS ALSO ABOUT TO OPEN IT’S FLOWERS

All tree of these plants bloom for a long time, but the skimmia already gets these flowerbuds in  Autumn so I think this is a good small bush for small gardens, all it needs is a bit of accid soil. There are male and female skimmia’s, the males get the flowers, the females get beautiful berries in Autumn, usually red but sometimes bright yellow.

All 3 of these plants attracts bees !

If you have any questions about plants I’ll be happy to answer them.

Have a great week all !

    1. The skimmia and the pieris are quite winterhardy and quite common over here. As for the euphorbia chariacias, it’s a bit tender but very common in France, Italy and Spain, but the warmer Winters we have been having they do very well in my garden.

    1. The pieris and the skimmia are quite winterhardy you know. Plants who are not winterhardy we can only plant after mid May.
