With the weather expected to become a little bit warmer very soon, we thought we’d get an update from Gliffaes Hotel on how their garden has come along this February. So here’s a quick update from Susie Suter, from Gliffaes.
“You would be forgiven for thinking that there is nothing much happening in the garden at Gliffaes right now. It’s the middle of February, we’ve had lots of snow, plenty of rain and cold conditions, let’s face it, not ideal weather for plants to burst forth.
However, there’s an amazing amount happening throughout the garden. A short amble around the grounds provides us with beautiful little miracles. Many varieties of stunning snowdrops have braved the cold and even Daffodils are just now beginning to show. Deep orange and red Witch Hazel lends an almost autumnal colour to the scene and the odd
Cyclamen nestles under the gigantic Atlantic Cedar. It’s fabulous to see purple Irises at this time of year too.
Over the coming few months, expect to see thousands of Spring bulbs flowering including waves of Daffodils, our national flower, and Crocus. Camellias and Magnolias will flower followed by Azaleas and Rhododendrons. The garden will be a riot of colour and scent.”
