AROUND THE GARDEN

As cold as what it has been, the days have been pretty reasonable and relatively dry considering the season is winter and I haven’t had that many days of wet weather where I can catch up on paperwork inside. This isn’t a complaint as there has been a heap to get on with outside and it feels good to be ticking off a mountain of pruning and track work, which is never ending. I’m sure you all know how it is.

We have had several of the large leaf rhododendrons flowering al- ready which is a tad on the earlier than normal side, but it is a sign that spring is just around the corner, yippee! We just need for frosty mornings to stay away otherwise it will ruin the overall look of such gorgeous flowering trusses. Rhododendron ‘Burnie Chameleon’ is flowering now and you can see it looking out from the tearoom window across from the plant sales area.
