£1800 For Cancer Research UK

With a target of £500 for Cancer Research UK by the sale of Pumpkins for Halloween, the phenomenal amount of £1800 has been raised by California Gardens, Howden.

Long standing employee Herbert Clark was instrumental in growing the bumper crop of Pumpkins, and through the generosity of the many customers from the Howden area and other visitors to the garden centre the Hall family and staff are justifiably pleased with the amount raised.

A cheque for £1800 was presented to Alison Coulthard from Ali’s Angels as the local representative for Cancer Research UK.

Plant of the Week: Hamamelis mollis

Plant of the Week: Hamamelis mollis

The Chinese witch hazel, Hamamelis mollis, casts a delicate, spidery spell on your garden throughout the winter months. You'll begin to notice its curiously curled lemony petals unfurling about now on bare branches; soon after, the air fills with a glorious spicy scent (enjoy its full intensity by cutting a branch and bringing it indoors).

It makes a large shrub, growing slowly to about 3m, and is happy in sun or shade (though you'll get the best of the flowers in a sunny spot as the scent is triggered by sunshine). The choice varieties include 'Goldcrest', with scarlet-centred blooms, and 'Wisley Supreme' with flowers of palest yellow.

Trim back vines

Trim back ornamental vines like Virginia creeper from around the eaves and doorframes of your house to keep them in bounds, always cutting back to a bud and training in any growth to their framework of wires. Remove older and overcrowded stems completely to keep the plant young and healthy.
