Carol Klein returns tonight with a new, I think, gardening programme on BBC2 at 8.30p.m.


"Life in a Cottage Garden" - the first of a series of four programmes. 



Dark and wet but mild so lots of flowers

Despite it being so dark and miserable it is also very mild and spring flowers are opening very quickly. I've added some photographs to my January album. 




Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Hope everyone had a great Christmas. We spent the holidays with our son David and his family in Limerick. The weather has been very mild so far this winter and snowdrops and early flowering shubs are showing a lovely display just now. The scent from the daphnes will start filling the air soon and should encourage us all to get out into the gardens again. On my wish list for plants this year are Anamonella thalictroides 'Green Hurricane' and Adonis amurensis ' Flora Pleno'which I came across in a book recently by David Culp titled 'The Layered Garden'.

Will not be able to go to Johnstown this year as the course at Kilmacurragh is on the day before and I am off on Thursday 10th to the herberium department in Trinity College for a visit with the Irish Garden Plants Society. I am sure you will all have a great time. Best wishes for the new gardening year and I am positive we are going to get a sunny, warm and dry summer for 2013. Mary
