Colourful winter gardens

There are a large number of daffodils, crocuses and snowdrops to be seen at the moment but in his blog Julian talks about Midwinter Fire, which has been making the most impact all winter and Daniel Coombes talks about the Scarlet Willow, which is doing a similar job.

We also look at the Japanese Cherry Blossom festival.

In Stewart Goulds second Bee blog he talks about pollination and spring.

We've got three lucky winners for our Orchard Pig cider giveaway, who each get a crate of cider (maybe they'll be tempted to give this Mussels, leek and cider dish a go!). We've got a new photo competition and have 2 tickets to the RHS show in Cardiff to give away (see below on how to enter).

We had a great response to the competition but there could only be three winners....

Winter and Spring Photo Competition

It's been an odd winter and spring and having a winter competition didn't seem to make a lot of sense as there hasn't been a lot of dramatic winter weather about.

So, this next photo competition is about plants in water, which seems more appropriate.

Full competition details are here
