Iberis sempervirens, which has the common name Candytuft, is just coming into flower. It likes a dry spot and is best in full sun. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #candytuft

Honesty flowers for months at this time of year. It is well worth getting a plant in your garden and then let it seed itself. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #honesty

The huge magnolia in Lower Candie Gardens is out already. I couldn’t manage a blue sky, but you need to see it before the really strong winds on Thursday. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #magnolia
