I am always cheered by the sight of snowdrops and other winter flowering bulbs. My snowdrops in the garden are starting to flower and are a sign that winter will soon be over.
I always want to add more colour to the winter garden and decided that I needed this plant; 'Nandina Domestica Firepower', which is a small shrub with lovely autumn and winter leaf colour, and white flowers in Spring.
I was sorry to hear on last week's 'Gardeners' Question Time' (Radio 4) that Chris Beardshaw does not like Nandinas and rather dismissed them. I shall enjoy my little plant, which has already given me a lot of pleasure through the dull winter weather.
