It’s January – so what’s blooming in Piglet’s garden?

On the 15th of each month bloggers from all over the world take part in Garden Bloggers Bloom Day organised by May Dream Gardens. What is blooming in your garden?

In the UK gardening in January like the weather, was depressing.. However, here in the Algarve I’m amazed there are so many plants, shrubs and succulents in bloom.

One of my favourite flowers is the Arum Lily. The leaves die down in summer when the sun is intense but in the winter we are rewarded with the most wonderful flowers!

This post continues over at Piglet’s Plot in Portugal

This post was originally reblogged from Piglet’s Plot in Portugal but due to a technical hitch I had to delete the post and start again. Does anyone else have problems reblogging or is it just me?

  1. Did you know the Arum is an indigenous South African plant? As is the Agapantha, which I have seen on several occasions growing on municipal verges over there.
    The last time over there we brought back some hybrid black Arums lilies. Beautiful too.


    1. What a great shame! have you thought about trying one in a pot? Mine grow well in the semi shade in summer and full sun in winter. I move them around. I grow all mine in pots – do you get frost in the south of france?
