Nice. I tried Clivia planted out here but not hardy enough for me.

Not much in the way of flowers here apart from the Camelias I inherited, except for this

I'm not a fan of the 'Dame Edna' type of Gladies but I like this one.

Rhododendron Loderi King George coming to it's best at the moment. Each flower, let alone the flower head, is the size of a fist and the scent is intoxicating. Easily my favourite of the Loderi hybrids and possibly my favourite Rhododendron.

Steve your King George is at least a month ahead of ours in Cornwall!

I think my plot is too windy for it, so I'll have to continue to enjoy other people's.

Hard to disagree, that is a lovely example, too. I tied it here but it turned into a husk in no time.

A visit to Leonardslee at Loderi hybrid time was always treat. I've not been since it re-opened so don't know how it might have changed, if at all - anyone visited?

Callum where are you located, its obviously milder than my location. (You have not filled in your location) My brahea edulis was starting to turn into a nice big palm. I grew it for years in Hertfordshire until it snuffed it in the December 2022 severe freeze. I now have a small martianus x fortunei in its spot.
