Depending on the weather, the hybrid witchhazels may be flowering right now. This plant blooms in winter after a brief warming period which means they can bloom anytime from mid-January to March. Watch for signs of swelling buds. And, make sure you go out and breathe in the spicy scent, once the flowers have fully opened. A wonderful way to battle the winter blues! If you can’t wait for the blooms in the garden, cut several branches and bring them inside to force blooms.
