a hit for the senses

In late winter, it’s therapeutic to indulge in a hit of colour and scent when our senses are at their most deprived. The brilliant purple spikes of Hyacinthus orientalis ‘Woodstock’, with their powerful fragrance, matched with the intensity of the purplish-pink flowers of Viola ‘Kim’, provide both. I’ve used a combination of plants so when these flowers fade, the rest becomes a study in form and texture. The overall effect, placed on a table so you can appreciate the scent, really brightens up a partially shady corner. How to achieve the look This sweet violet is just one of many cultivars available today. Its delicate, little flowers with darker buds are held beautifully above the rounded, spring-green leaves. These contrast with the pewter, veined leaves of Helleborus lividus ‘White Marble’. The creamy,…

potted gems

With so many plants bursting into flower, I like to grow a range in pots and arrange them on a metal table in the yard to remind me of what I have and how beautiful the flowers are close up. It also reminds me of my training at Kew, where myriad alpines are grown in pots to perfection and displayed in the Alpine House. Sometimes I grow them in plastic pots and transfer them into terracotta ones for the display. How to achieve the look Prunus ‘Okamé’, a cross between P. incisa and P. campanulata, is the centre plant in this display and sets the colour with its carmine-pink flowers. Iris reticulata ‘Harmony’ is easy to grow in pots, where you can appreciate its faint scent. I always grow a few Crocus…

ringing in spring

Helleborus x sahinii ‘Winterbells’ inspired this design, based on reminders of winter and heralds of spring. It flowers for several months and performs as well in a shady border as it does in pots. It feels moody and dark, and with the winter colouring of the ivy, fits perfectly in this old cauldron. Anemones are the epitome of spring and the dainty blue form of Anemone blanda lifts the colour and texture of the scheme while keeping it deep and dusky. How to achieve the look The hellebore displays a beautiful spectrum of colours in its bell-shaped flowers as well as the stems and leaves. I love the way it contrasts with the blue of the anemones. The purple stems and veined leaves also go well with the darker markings of the…
