We have lots of gift ideas for mothering Sunday this weekend. Daffodils, tulips, Helleborus, primulas, and wallflowers are all in flower and putting on a show, as well as more unusual shrubs such as Coronilla, Osmanthus, Sarcococca, Hamamelis, and Ribes most of which have a lovely sweet perfume to boot.

Dahlia tubers are now in and we have 21 varieties of cactus, semi-cactus, double and single tall varieties to choose from. Other summer flowering bulbs available are Acidanthera-absolutely heaven scented, Eucomis bicolor and Eucomis pole-evansii-these are the pineapple flowers with Eucomis pole-evansii being the giant pineapple flower, very impressive at the end of summer and into autumn.

Especially if the weather is kind come and enjoy having a walk around our gardens and have a look at what is starting to come up and show itself, the swelling buds and new growth stirs excitement for what is to come, and then pop to The Tea House for refreshment.
