Plants in Our Garden – Hibiscus

The variety I have is Hibiscus syriacus ‘Oiseau Bleu’ which has amazing large deep purple/blue coloured flowers with a bright magenta centre. It is a deciduous shrub but has lovely dark green foliage during late spring and summer.

Mistletoe isn’t just for Christmas

If, like me, you love mistletoe and Christmas wouldn’t be the same without it, you’ll love this website too. It has lots of facts about mistletoe including the fact that the mistletoe we are all familiar with is just one of hundres of species worldwide. All are plant parasites, meaning that they grow as parasites on the branches of trees and shrubs. In Britain, most mistletoe grows on apple trees but it can also be found on poplars and willows.
