Spring 2022 at Bressingham
If you cannot make it to the gardens this Spring, we are bringing the gardens to you!
Early Spring jobs in the garden
We make no excuses for showing you the essential pruning, or cutting back of two of our recommended favourites at Bressingham.
Pruning Hydrangea arborescens ‘Annabelle’
Hydrangea arborescens Annabelle. Cut back all old stems to the ground in late March or early April.
New growth appears almost immediately and from bright spring green foliage appear, usually in June the first small lime green flowers , gradually enlarging as they turn to white. On moister soils sun or light shade , flowering continues until September, the flowers dying back , ideal for garden display or flower arranging.
Pruning Cornus ‘Midwinter Fire’ for winter colour , March 2022
Cornus sanguinea Midwinter Fire, If not already done, cut old stems nearly to the ground, or just above the thicker, yellowish older wood. New growth will appear reaching 60cm./2ft. on drier soils to 12ocm/ 4ft where more moisture.
Length of colour and interest – golden leaves from Nov. to Dec., fiery stems from Dec. to end of March most years. Five long months in Winter
