The garden in January

I worked hard in the garden in early December and despite all the wind and rain it is still looking quite good.

The green spiky plant is a libertia grandiflora which promises a grand show in May and June, and the grey mess in front is nepeta mussenii which I will not cut back until March. In May 2013 it was beautiful, even though the plant was much smaller and had been badly damaged by the very cold winter weather. The supplier was that wonderful plantsman’s nursery, Woottens of Wenhaston.
