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.
