๐ŸƒHere’s The Latest From My #Hampshire Garden For #SixOnSaturday January 28th Hosted by @JamesLStephens #GardeningTwitter #GardeningMakesMeHappy

January is a hard month to find exciting things growing in the northern hemisphere, but I have found six items for this week’s post.

January 28th

The first three photos.

Firstly, I have been trimming my variegated Tradiscantia which was getting leggy and looking shabby, so I have take lots of cuttings which I hope to grow into new plants.

Next photo is this lovely scented white Jasmine. A couple of weeks ago I showed it budding up and now the flowers are opening and it is giving off a delicate scent.

The third photo is of more cuttings which are beginning to grown roots. Here we have a jar with an African Violet leaf and an Echeveria leaf.

Next are small green shoots on two of the hydrangea cuttings that I took last autumn. I’ve had to bring them inside as they were getting too damp in the cold frame and were showing signs of mould.

The second photo is of the red Kalanchoe which is just coming into bud. Also known as flaming Katy, Christmas kalanchoe, florist kalanchoe and Madagascar widowโ€™s-thrill. A tropical succulent, they are a perennial flowering plant from the Crassulaceae family.

Last photo goes to the Bluebells in the back garden which are starting to push through. It will be a while yet before they flower.

  1. Well done with the cuttings and the jasmine is gorgeous. Our garden is looking the worse for wear after the snow and freezing temps. I think there’ll be a lot of cutting back come spring. The hebes usually stay evergreen but even they are looking very sorry for themselves.

  2. Lovely to see your plants and such promise. The red Kalanchoe is one of the few plants that’s always managed to survive my lack of green fingers, and now my mother has three, and two are flowering at the moment. Mind you, it is cold here, but not quite as cold as there.

  3. I think it is wonderful how we can find #SixonSaturday despite the horrible weather! There’s always something interesting to show. Your variegated Tradiscantia is super pretty! And of course I would love to have the Jasmine scented flowers wafting through the air where I live – lucky you, Rose!
