In the depths of winter

Well, we really have had an early start to the winter cold this year, so not much has been happening. But it’s amazing how resilient plants can be. Despite two heavy snowfalls and weeks of frozen soil, these Lobelia Butterfly Blue have been trying very hard to retain a hint of blue (despite their herbaceous nature!). This photo was taken on December 29th through the mist.

But things have eased up a bit temperature-wise, so Rob intends to take advantage of the window of opportunity to pot up some of the bare root stock that has been languishing in big containers for the past few weeks. Be nice if the drizzle stopped, though …..
