Harold was pleased to see three Red Admirals and a Brimstone in his Sandford garden on 15/02/19, all nectaring on his beautiful Clematis Chirrhosa.

This winter flowering Clematis is such a useful winter flowering plant for all pollinators such as butterflies coming out of hibernation as well as the numerous bees that can be seen searching for pollen on sunny winter days.
