What to do now in the garden

If you are anything like me you are itching to get in the garden. As soon as the new year starts I pace the garden every day looking for new growth. This year the unusually warm winter has produced quite a few surprises. Some of our Hellebores and Eranthus (winter aconite) started flowering before Christmas and the snowdrops and crocus are in full flower several weeks earlier than normal.
