Plant of the Week: Corylus avellana var. contorta
Winter beauty isn't just about flowers and colourful bark (important though they are): it's also about silhouettes against a frosty ground. And there's no more sculptural silhouette than a corkscrew hazel, its branches curling and contorting crazily in a wildly intricate dance. As January draws to a close, the catkins appear, dangling their long tassels like elegant exclamation marks among the twists and tangles.
Like all hazels, it's easy going and happy in any spot in the garden or in a roomy container. It grows slowly to about 3m and needs little care, beyond pruning out the occasional straight stem to keep that spectacularly twisted outline.
Buy in seed potatoes
Buy in your seed potatoes for a bumper crop of spuds this summer. You'll find a fantastic range just coming onto the shelves in the garden centre: plant a selection of early, second-early and maincrop potatoes to make sure your harvest lasts as long as possible.
