RHS February plants and design show review

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day February 2012

There's not much out in my garden this month, - 2 doses of snow since the beginning of the month should have meant that there is nothing, - but these Snowdrops go on and on

They were completely flattened last week, and looking very floppy, but have stood back up in defiance at the February cold. I think that they are probably Galanthus Elwesii.

Also still going strong are the Cyclamen coum

I've got several patches of these, and i'm hoping that they'll spread themselves.

There are some Hellebores coming out into flower, but they are very disappointing at the moment, unlike the beauties at the RHS plant and design show in London today, so i'm hoping that they will be looking better by next month.

If you want to see what's flowering all over the UK and the world in other garden bloggers gardens, - pop over to May Dream Gardens, - with thanks as always to Carol for rounding them all up.

I love your little snowdrops. They must be hardy little things! I grow 'Snowflakes' and I love that they are so carefree and reliable. In my part of the world here in the central valley of California we are finally getting some much needed rain. Happy Bloom Day!

Sweet little cyclamen! I've only ever seen them in grocery stores here...I wonder if I could put them in the garden? Happy GBBD!

I'd guess that the ones in your grocery stores probably won't be hardy. More the wet than the cold, so good drainage and overhead shelter help.

Lovely Snowdrops!
Pretty Cyclamen, too!
The only cyclamen I've seen here are indoor plants. I must ask at the garden center if they have hardy ones. They are so beautiful!
Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom day!

Snowdrops are among the most beautiful early spring flowers. And I love seeing cyclamen growing outside!
