Plants don't really go dormant over winter, I don't think. They slow down, but my morning walks around the garden always reveal something new every day!
Having said that, now things are really going for it.
My Saxifraga burseriana 'Gloria' in my alpine hypertufa container:
The Clematis montana 'Tertrarose':
The Tulipa 'Queen of Night':
Hostas sending up shoots, Camellia flowers almost bursting from their buds, Aubreita steadily growing. It's all very exciting for a new gardener like me.
And down on the farm I am hardening off my Alcea rosea 'Powderpuffs' (Hollyhocks) which I sowed in Autumn:
With Lathyrus odoratus 'Red Arrow' (Sweet Peas), various Aquilegia species (Columbines), Lupins and Cosmos bipinnatus all growing reasonably well, it won't be long before the garden is ablaze with colour.
If it stops raining.
