|In addition to my attempt to defy the climate by growing apparently sub-tropical plants, I also aim to have plenty of flowers in the open garden in mid-winter, despite the ice and snow. Again the method is basically choice of plants, and it is surprising how many are available. The photo on the left is of full-size daffodils in my garden on 2nd February 2003. The evergreen shrub on the right is at its best in November and December - reliable flowers at Christmas!|
