Hazel catkins – for me a sure sign that spring is just round the corner.

I know spring is almost here, but it is very hard to think about it when I have snow in the garden and just my helebores and croucus are showing any sign of life. Even the good old hardy passion flower looks like it has finally given up! I think I will invest in one of the small twisted hazels. Do you think I might get one at Malvern?

The Corkscrew hazels can grow quite large (20 feet) – but they are very slow growing so it will take about 25 years to reach 10 feet – I rather like them I had one at B/End
Don’t worry spring will soon be here.

So pretty! We have been having nice weather, but today is dark and nasty. Do you normally have mild winters?

Hi Sandy – this winter has been longer and harder than usual here in the UK – more like the winters of my childhood.
