GARDENING Toby Musgrave

Shrubs for 

Here are a few suggestions for shrubs which do their thing in spring, and which if you plant them now, should give you a great show this year. So here are a handful of my favourites:

Magnolia stellata The star magnolia is a beautiful shrub with white flowers, which, as its name suggests, are arranged like a star. Not only are the flowers very delicate, but they are also sweetly scented, and open from attractive silky buds. It is relatively slow growing, but will eventually reach a height of 3m and a spread of 4m. It has quite a delicate scent and the narrow, deep green leaves that appear after the flowers are very attractive. It prefers an acid soil, but will live in a neutral one if you plant it in a rich loam and dose it annually with Sequestrene.

Daphne x burkwoodii 'Somerset'

Chaenomeles japonica The Japanese quince is often wrongly called simply 'Japonica'. It is a deciduous, thorny shrub grown for its bright red or redorange flowers and round, yellow fruits. The leaves are mid-green and oval in shape. It makes a fantastic wall shrub or hedge, but if left alone to be a freestanding shrub (it will reach 1m tall by 2m wide), it does become very untidy.

Both this species and its close relative, Chaenomeles speciosa (Flowering quince), which is slightly larger and bears clusters of bright red flowers from late winter until early spring, prefer well drained soil in a full sun location.

Advertise your business call 0800 970 7687 or email info@link-mag.co.uk

This semi-evergreen upright shrub is a relative of the native Mezeron (Daphne mezereum) that is flowering right now, but instead of pink flowers it has white flowers that are fringed with pink. These appear in clusters and are so sweetly scented that on a still day one plant can make a whole garden smell wonderful. The leaves are lance shaped, pale to mid green and, given a position in full sun, the shrub will reach 1.5m tall by 1.5m wide. 17


Preston News

Preston Improving Dementia Awareness

Preston City Council is aiming to raise awareness of dementia by offering free sessions to the public as part of a campaign led by the Alzheimer’s Society. The ‘Dementia Friends’ campaign aims to increase awareness of dementia and change the way people think, talk and act about dementia. It is part of the Prime Minister’s challenge to help create dementia friendly communities. Councillor Matthew Brown, cabinet member for community engagement and inclusion, said: ‘We are committed to ensure that our services become more responsive to the needs of people affected by dementia. We are training our staff to become ‘dementia friends. As part of this approach we are also committed to providing regular events sessions for the community, which are free and open to everyone. Dementia is something that affects one in three people over the age of 65, so everyone should take the opportunity to learn more about it.’ • Sessions are to be held on the CitizenZone vehicle on Thursday 30th January 2014 at Grimsargh Village Hall Car Park, Preston Road, Grimsargh, PR2 5JS.Time: Session 1: 4.00pm to 5.00pm Session 2: 6.00pm to 7.00pm • 12 places are available for each session. Booking is essential. To book contact Jackie Singleton, Tel 01772 906453 • The campaign is funded by the Department of Health and Cabinet Office. • A ‘dementia friend’ is someone who has attended a one hour information session and has committed to an action that will make the lives of people living with dementia a little bit better. Anyone of any age can be a dementia friend.

18

Fact file • There are 800,000 people with dementia in the UK with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2021. This will soar to 1.7 million by 2050. • One in three people over the age of 65 will die with dementia. • 80% of people in care homes have dementia or severe memory problems. • There are over 17,000 people under the age of 65 with dementia in the UK. • Dementia affects nearly 25,000 people from black, Asian and minority ethnic groups in the UK. • Dementia costs the UK over £23 billion a year, and this figure will rise to £27 billion per annum by 2018. • Unpaid carers supporting someone with dementia save the economy £8 billion a year. • Dementia is one of the main causes of disability later in life, ahead of cancer, cardiovascular disease and stroke. As a country we spend much less on dementia than on these other conditions.
