    I couldn’t resist these £5 for a dozen from the market.

            Some double Hellebores flowering for the first time :) and a scented-leaf pelargonium that's decided to be hardy!

                  A few things getting ready for Spring :
                  P1080528.jpg

                  This trailing lobelia surviving in the window box with protection from the NE winds kindly provided by the ferns.

                  P1080531.jpg

                  A strong Hellebore whose name I don't know.

                  Cylclamen self seeding from a neighbour's garden.... a keeper.

                  Camellia japonica "Hagoromo" with buds fit to burst,

                    The Scented Geraniums are relatively hardy if frost free.

                      Hi Caroline :) yes, every year there are a few blue ones that are much earlier than the pink A. coronaria. It gives a bit of variation from endless pink in January, even if they're not the 'Lord Lieutenant' they're supposed to be :biggrin:

                        Which SW France most definitely isn't! :biggrin: But that plant is 3 years old now, and fairly sheltered. Even so.....flowers in January??:scratch:

                          Some of our violets have started flowering. I only noticed them the other day as I was digging them out. For small plants they're certainly tough to get out and they spread like mad. They're becoming one of the most prolific weeds in the garden :hate-shocked:. They look nice but smother other plants and cause havoc amongst the snowdrops.
