What they say...

…there is a display garden with beds and borders, sensitively planted, full of verve and panache.

Desperate Plea! Boxes!

We spend many hours collecting boxes from a number of sources for you to take your plants home in. It is an enormous help therefore if you can provide your own boxes and moreover a sure way of becoming a favourite customer! Many thanks.

No one can be in any doubt that this has been quite a tricky spring for gardeners and growers alike. Post Christmas proved wet, wet,wet and the first cut on the grass here was like ploughing through a forest, the mower under full burden. We can't complain about the growth now though. The warm, even hot days we have had has seen the plants teem out of the ground. Time for staking soon.

We've managed to fill the nursery with our home grown plants and they are in fine fettle with good roots on for planting. The Epimediums (relatives of Berberis) are in particularly good shape now and do you know the very pretty hardy Gladiolus trisitis with its plale yellow scented flowers. A few left.

A rather sad note to close on - the arrival of our Nightingale who normally makes his/her return trip from Senegal in Africa by the middle of April. Heaven knows what obstacles this small brown bird must face on its journey and its decline in numbers has been well documented. With no return for us yet we may be added to that list of statistics. We keep our fingers crossed.

We hope to see customers old and new over the coming year. Good luck with your gardening!
