What’s in bloom in February

posted in: Gardening | 19
Are you thinking of buying more plants for your UK garden? Let me show you what’s in bloom in February in our garden. Hopefully this article will give you an idea of what plants can be in flower this month.  Since lots of them are bulbs you really need to be prepared back in August and September when the bulbs arrive in the shops.  Otherwise you can buy potted bulbs at this time of year which are a bit more expensive.

    The Snowdrops and Crocus are I'm sure, welcome sights as they push their way skywards. I really love that Dewey's White Hellebore. It's so sweet. Now that the winter weather has arrived, it sounds as if everything is as it should be.

    A beautiful selection for GBBD. Love your hellebores and crocus, and the witch hazel is so pretty.

    What lovely blooms in your gardens and what a wonderful way to display them in your blog.

    Enjoy all that beauty that surrounds you.

    Nice to see what is going on bloomwise on your side of the pond. Where I live we normally get 60 to 100 inches of snow in a year – this year, next to nothing! Bulbs aren't out quite yet so I enjoyed seeing yours. Happy GBBD.

    Beautiful post…love the layout! EEK…you totally reminded me, however, that I think I accidentally dug up my Crocus patch last summer when I was removing a bunch of Spanish Bluebell 🙁

    It's true, I must have been the only one without Hellebores blooming. Yours is the 5th or 6th blog I've seen this morning with Hellebores. Not to worry though, I remedied that yesterday! I love the markings of your Deweys White. Now the only thing I'm missing is witchhazel 😉

    Hi from Texas,
    I found your garden blog in the most unusual way; on blotanical my post is blended with yours. It seems my lead picture has somebody else's words so I got curious! I traced the words back to your lovely blog. I'm glad I did.
    You have some beautiful photos here.
    Happy GBBD from David at Tropical Texana.

    Just gorgeous Rosie. Not many of these grow well in our climate, most I've not seen in real life. The hellebore flowers fascinate me, would love to see these one day.

    Enjoyed your photos and presentation as always Rosie . I see a calendar in the making 🙂

    Your photos are beautiful Rosie. Sadly it's still winter here and we're still digging ourselves out of the snow that is still falling.
