Hamamelis to brighten dull January days

Hamamelis are one of the earliest shrubs to flower each year and this year was no exception. We grow three -‘Jelena’, ‘Diane’ and a new one this year ‘Harry’, which are red, orange and yellow/orange respectively.

Here is a little gallery of them in bloom to cheer up the dullest day!

In previous gardens we have grown yellow varieties such as H. mollis, H. pallida or H. Arnold Promise, but in our current patch we have gone for richer shades.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
