Title: Stunning Spring flowering highlights
Broadcast: 18th October
Presenter: Melissa

When you visit a cool climate garden like Cloudehill, you really get that feeling of moving through the seasons – it’s a great place to get excited about Spring.

  • Hellebores are an absolute highlight in the winter-spring garden, ‘Penny’s Pink’ is super stunning with striking mid-pink flowers and lots of them.
  • Don’t overlook Mahonias for a bit of early colour too. The beautiful Mahonia ‘Moseri’ which is harder to come by than some Mahonias but worth seeking out for its yellow clusters of spring flowers followed by deep blue berries.
  • Viburnums can be evergreen or deciduous – this one is semi evergreen and grows to 1.5 to 2.5 metres tall but the real highlight, are these rounded clusters of sweetly scented white flowers which open from pink buds.
