Chiswick House springs to life this month in the beautifully restored conservatory with the Camellia Festival. There's 33 historic camellias to enjoy from 16 February to 17 March.
Fergus Garrett, head gardener at Great Dixter, selects his favourite plants for the March garden. Here we highlight Pulmonaria 'Diana Clare'.
Pulmonaria 'Diana Clare'
A first-class clump-forming lungwort with glittering long basal leaves 25cm long and covered in a silver wash. The leaf midrib and leaf edges remain a contrasting green. Produces clusters of shallowly lobed funnel-shaped flowers held in purple brown calyxes on elongated stems, which are decorated with small silver spotted stem leaves. The flowers open rosy purple and change colour to violet and violet blue. The whole plant is covered in bristly hairs. Benefits from a haircut after flowering.
Winter is the perfect time to think about your garden and how it can look even better next year. Award-winning designer Jinny Blom gives us her 10-point plan of things to consider.
I’ve lived in my current house for the last 26 years. My garden has changed at least four times in that period as time, energy and budget permitted, and currently is undergoing a major overhaul, the biggest yet!
