    • Position: full sun or light dappled shade
    • Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained soil
    • Rate of growth: average
    • Flowering period: February to April
    • Hardiness: frost hardy (will need winter protection in colder areas)

      A native to woodlands in the Himalayas and China, this gorgeous plant is closely related to Daphnes. It is most highly prized for its flowers, which appear in clusters on the tips of the bare stems, and open in late winter. They have a strong scent which will help attract the toughest, winter insects, and when in bud the covering of silky white hairs make them look as if they are covered in frost. A great plant for the winter garden, they rarely succumb to pests and diseases, but will need a sheltered spot.

    • Garden care: They can tolerate temperatures down to -5C, but in colder areas it is best to plant them against a sunny, south facing wall. Apply a generous layer of mulch in autumn and cut away any damaged or crossing branches in early spring.

      A:

      Hello,

      I am not really sure why your plants have not developed buds, but the usual causes are plants focusing on root development rather than flowers, or not enough water, light or nutrients. You can normally give them a bit of a push by feeding with a high-potash fertiliser such as Sulphate of Potash or Tomorite.

  • Q:

    Winter flowering shrubs and climbers to plant with new hedge

    Hello, I have newly planted a hedge (made up from Hornbeam, Rosa rugosa, Blackthorn, Cornus, Hawthorn and Hazel) about 50ft long. I have been told that if I was to plant amongst the hedge some winter flowering Clematis such as 'Wisley Cream' it would give some nice colour these bleak winter months when the hedge is bare of foliage. The hedge is south facing and although the ground is ???good??? heavy Cambridgeshire clay the hedge has been planted in a trench back filled with leaf mulch, chipped wood and spent peat. Although I have said about in-planting Clematis in the hedge, I am open to other plant suggestions if you have any. Regards Terry
