Looking good now
The fat fists of silvery lilac buds on Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' have opened up to release an intense, sugary scent at the mouth of the Winter Garden.

Corylus avellana 'Schizochlamys'

Clustered around the small hut that used to offer refuge to the Cambridgeshire constabulary policeman on duty in the Garden, are some elegant hazels.

One of the earlist to flower is Corylus avellana 'Schizochlamys', which is producing long catkins in pale mustard yellow with a pink flush in generally two-tailed tassels.
The catkins are the male flowers, the hazels being monoecious and wind-pollinated. The tiny female flowers - only the bright pink styles protrude from a tight bud, like miniature anemones -are just emerging.
