Our 9th season

We work with the seasons and offer our customers the best we can whenever we can. Welcome to our 9th season at the nursery. 2017 has proven quite challenging already, but with new polytunnel covers we managed to survive Doris and are now open everyday until the end of October. We have been busy making repairs and growing lots of new varieties of perennials and vegetables. We hope you will enjoy our classic and new selection of plants which are now all out and ready for planting. Vegetable plants will be available from the end of March and our selection of Summer Bedding will be out on display as soon …

2014 comes to an end

“Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle … a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl. And the anticipation nurtures our dream.” Although we are now officially closed for Winter, we are as busy as always: repairing, tidying, labelling, repotting, ordering and above all keeping our fingers crossed that the weather is kind to us! We already have a lovely selection of new perennials for next season. These will be overwintered either in the tunnels or out on the nursery. Spring bulbs are nicely tucked up in pots ready to sprout. We’re trying out a whole new …

At long last July!

Hemerocallis Crimson Pirate

“A lovely garden attracts the eye, Admired and envied by passers-by. There are Achillea, Phlox and Lobelia, Clematis, Jasmine and Abelia, Echinacea, Osmanthus, Miscanthus, Campanula and Dianthus. A tired gardener may think, from his patio seat: “Well worth the toil to give the soul a treat.” Consider the gift Mother Nature has given; Such beauty, yearly, the passion has driven.” Welcome to the first,  well overdue update for July. Life at the nursery is never dull and we are always busy preparing and bringing out new stock which at the moment is looking particularly good. We have baskets, perennials, vegetables and still some bedding plants. Perennials Tall, bursting with root …
