Plant of the Week: Corylus avellana var. contorta
Winter beauty isn't just about flowers and colourful bark (important though they are): it's also about silhouettes against a frosty ground. And there's no more sculptural silhouette than a corkscrew hazel, its branches curling and contorting crazily in a wildly intricate dance.

Like all hazels, it's easy going and happy in any spot in the garden or in a roomy container. It grows slowly to about 3m and needs little care, beyond pruning out the occasional straight stem to keep that spectacularly twisted outline.
Show off your hellebores
Remove last year's old and tatty leaves from hellebores to expose their exquisite, nodding flowers for all to see. There are dozens of different varieties to brighten up the garden at this time of year, from the clear yellows, whites and brooding purples of the 'Harvington' series to the picotee petals of Helleborus x hybridus 'White Spotted Lady'.
