RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate, North Yorkshire is a great visit and today the sun shone all day, the bees emerged, and one could see the plants opening out to welcome spring. So here are the highlights.



I’m no great lover of heathers though ….



Catkins can be as good as blossom



“Anna’s Red” and certainly on my newly created shopping list



Another of those catkins



Skimmia japonica “Red Diamonds”



The head only of the towering reed sculpture



Kale “Redbor” is tasty too



Primula palinuro



Primula allionii ‘Mrs Dyas’



Primula ‘Joan Hughes’



Primula allionii ‘ Apple Blossom’



Saxifraga species and my favourite today



Olsynium douglasii 



Primula ‘Netta Dennis’



 Dionysia aretioides ‘Bevere’ and spectacular



Fritillaria raddeana



Draba yunnanensis



Cornus mas – a mass of blossom



We had a visitor at lunch

  1. Trying to catch up among blogs… what a beautiful, refreshing view of spring! I always did want heathers, but have never gardened in a really appropriate climate 😉 I love the looks of that Fritillaria raddeana; it seems quite graceful in comparison with the imperialis types.
