News from the Nursery
March 3rd 2012
Well the season seems to be rushing in rather faster than we would like, all of a sudden there are a million and one jobs to do. March is a busy month anyway, herbaceous perennials need splitting shrubs need potting, pricking out galore, seed sowing everywhere, need I go on.
It is with great joy that I can now say our hellebores are back on track - having lost most of our collection during the winter of 2010. It was an experience I would sooner not repeat.
We have just finished potting 5000 for next year and the pollination is going well. Our main aims are to produce healthy garden-worthy plants with outward facing flowers if possible. The latter seems to be getting better with a large percentage of our plants having flowers that you can see without having to continually bend down.
Just a few to whet your appetite, still plenty up at the nursery.
Lots of things looking really nice, the shrubs have come through this winter looking very nice and we are doing a special line of smaller herbaceous perennials and shrubs at £1.75, four for £6.00
In the Vegetable line we have Broad Beans, Leeks, Lettuce, Cabbages,Onion sets, Shallots and of course Seed Potatoes. I have just planted my onions and shallots. Seed sowing should now start and continue for many months.
