Wow get a load of those camellias!! Mine are in bud but no flowers as yet - Must be warmer down there in Bristol!
Give poor Jamie a big hug from me and tell him to stop running about (a bit difficult for a spaniel I would think) Love all your plantings, especially hellebores - they are fab.

Thanks everybody for your good wishes for Jamie.
Lulu not sure how long it will take,Because there are abnormality with his shoulder from an injury he sustained 4 years ago the vet has sent the x rays to Langford Veterinary College for a second opinion, so we await the outcome of that

Bjs , we have just come back today from a visit to friends in Devises . I do think things are more advanced over in the east . The birds were singing beautifully , and everything waking up (if they have been to sleep at all).

the larger fern is an english native(would need to look the name up)There is another plant the same that receives a lot more rain than the one you see and that produces hunreds of babies on the ends of each section of the frond.If it is staked down to the ground loads of them will root, will post a picture tomorrow.

Hope Jamie gets better soon, loving your pictures, got me excited about the garden...just might have to go in the hottub today after a bit of gardening!!!

Poor old Jamie, hope he heels quickly. I bet the steroids are giving him a huge appetite. Lovely to see your Camellias and Hellebores. Really pretty all of them.

It is incredible, so many blloming bushes and plants at the end of the year! My Viburnum bodnatensae just showed few buds these days. And Jamie has beautiful head.

We have had a few frosts since thoes were taken and finished the open blooms on the Camellia.

Do you keep Camellia indoors during the winter? I like Camelias and for some time I am thinking of buing one to my garden, but I am afraid it will die.

Most are growing in the garden they are fully hardy in the UK it is only the flowers that are damaged by cold weather.Most are to large for pots some 8 feet high(2.5meters)some up to 25 years of age.They are good in pots but more likely to die if the pot freezes solid than if they were in the ground,if you can prevent the pot freezing very good.
