What they say...

Visitors to this small nursery will come away, not only with a boot full of grasses but, as Gough practises what he preaches in his magnificent borders, buckets of information on how to plant them.

Marchants Snowdrops

For details of our annual sale, see Events page


Graham's Blog

This may become a winter with a sting in its tale but we till now we have enjoyed a fabulous winter and the proof of that is in our grass paths which remain plush and green. By now they would usually be in prime condition for the battle of the Somme re-enactments. Anyway, a little time to go yet.

February is the usual time for our snowdrop sale and this year is the earliest we have called the sale (President Trump can stick that in his pipe and smoke it) which will be held next week-end, that is Saturday 26th 2019 10.00am till 4.00pm. We will have a good variety, about 40 in all but if you would like a list to do some homework then do fill in the Snowdrop request on this website and I will email you a copy.

Most of the Snowdrops have faired well given the drought conditions of last year, proof of the fact that it pays to be a bulb under these circumstances. Then, as always, there are the inexplicable losses. A flourishing clump  of 'Wasp' has gone to the wall so I'll have to rethink that one but on the whole losses are few and I hope that is the case for you too.

Our snowdrops are always dug up and potted in the days running up to the sale so they are always in peak condition. They make a wonderful sight en masse in their pots so even if you do not intend to buy do come and see them in the potting shed next week end. Hope you can make it!
