SWG001 January in a Scottish cottage garden

Welcome to a new departure for Stopwatch Gardener: a walk around my cottage garden, which I will periodically publish as podcast that you can subscribe to. In the meantime, click the player at the bottom of the page to listen to this 6-minute inaugural podcast episode.

In this episode, I take a quick walk around the courtyard, take a look at my peach tree that’s threatening to burst into flower even though it’s only mid-January here, and have a look at what’s in flower, from the hellebores through to an extremely unseasonal lupin. I also take a look at the vegetable bed where I’ve put up some defenses to fight off the cats that do unspeakable things in the soil there when I’m not looking.

Plants mentioned in this episode:

  • Euphorbia
  • Helleborus foetidus
  • Cerinthe
  • Daphne
  • Wild Maine Lupins
  • Peach Avalon Pride
  • Anemone Blanda
  • Narcissus Sun Disc
  • Rose de Rescht
