presents under the tree
It is perishing cold today, really bad!
The plan was to move the two coronet apple trees, acer and Viburnum. But I couldn't face it.
Instead I visited the Arboretum Garden Centre to find a present for one of my son's teacher, who is a gardener.
I picked her up two hellebores for €11.98. Hellebores are a great present at this time of year and even if people have them already, who couldn't find space for another hellebore?
I was tempted by the Camellia sasanqua but I reminded myself that I was not there to buy for myself and besides, I feared for its hardiness. They did look great though.
The great thing about buying presents in the Arboretum is that they wrap them for you! Now, I don't know about you, but I find plants tricky to wrap so I think this is a great service.
