Garden Notes – Spring

Garden Club The Villager

What a spring. The blossom was superb though short lived after the very hot Easter. No one to share it with sadly. I have one late magnolia that comes out with the apple blossom. It is a large flowered yellow with a pink flush at the base called Sunsation. I only got it because it was in a sale at a garden centre and a cousin urged me on. It was still expensive!! It is now about 12 ft high and still going and is covered with flowers. The best things about it are that it flowers late and misses the frosts and unlike many other yellow ones the leaves come after the flowers. ...
