End of Season

OFF SEASON OPENING TIMES:

10:00 – 16:00

It’s been a very strange year. Bedding plant season traditionally runs until June, and although we’ll have stock (we’ll have a good range of salvia as well as a good variety of late perennial geranium, heuchera, delphinium, lupins and a few more robust perennials such as:Screenshot_20200529-101007_GoogleAlstromeria hybrids.

Going into July we’ll continue stocking flowering perennials, and this year we’ll bring forward our autumn supply of young shrubs- so there’ll be over 200 varieties throughout the summer.

A very different season! Not the stock we’ll expect, far less annual summer bedding, far fewer baskets, but we’ll have plants nevertheless.

So one way or another- there’ll be colour for your garden!

Open from May 14th

Social Distancing Measures:

  • Follow the one-way system
  • 1 trolley per customer

Early Spring

NOTICE: WATTON NURSERY OPEN AS USUAL

The nursery is ready for the year, stocked, and looking great.

Plug plants and primulas will be here until the end of March.

In addition to this we have: Alpines, shrubs, climbers, hedging (some lovely new laurel and red robin bushes), a full stock of acers…

3330-0

Acer dissectum Iniba Shidare

And there’s plenty more to come. We already have small perennials, and our larger stock (Lupins/heucheras, etc) will form a perfect complement from April onwards.

For sheer variety, this might be my favourite time of year. A few notable specimens to look out for (and hurry, they’ll be popular, I imagine), are as follows:

ae2d320259c9441921cd121a232e1f80

Nandina ‘Lemon and Lime’

 

Edgeworthia Chrysantha

And as I have promised a few of you, some smaller ones of these-

6100845_m

Euonymus alatus.

We also have some standard wisteria and lilac which I’m very excited about, and will probably photograph and post when they’re in flower, if they last on the nursery that long that is!

Until then, happy gardening!

New Year

Open from January 6th.

—————————————–

January and February tend to be quiet. I’ll update this post in February to let you all know what’s coming in March (We aim to have the nursery looking INCREDIBLE from the 1st March onward) but in the meantime here’s what you can expect=

PRIMULAS-1080x675

Primula Acaulis (Common names include: polyanthus/primula/prims)

The first of these are flowering in the next few weeks, and as a stop-gap bedding before the Spring season arrives, they’re perfect; hardy, colourful, low maintenance.

Bulbs can still be planted. We’ve potted up tete a tete, snowdrops, bluebells, daffs, crocus and many more. These are rooting now, although can be set at any point right up until spring.

It’s a good time for hedging! Although the majority of our laurel/red robin comes late Feb, there’s still a bit of native beech and privet. Better, it’s cheap this time of year, and conditions for planting are perfect.

In the meantime we’ll be busy growing the first plugs for the Spring season.

Best,

Max.

Christmas

Christmas trees are here!

Lots of large specimens this year, so if you have the space we’ll most likely try and tempt you…

20191121_095230.jpg

Scottish grown, sustainable Nordman fir

As well as trees we have our freshly made wreathes, designed in-house, created with holly grown on the nursery.

wreath

Expect to see smaller gifts and decorations too, including:

Wicker tree skirts,

Tree stands,

Pot grown blue fir,

Cyclamen,

Pot grown holly,

and my favourite, the year round berries of skimmia parbella, a perfect festive garden addition:

skimmia-japonica-pabella-photo-floraholland

As usual, on at least one of the weekends you can expect to see us with the bbq on (we might even have a spare hot dog if you’re lucky), and perhaps even some mulled wine.

See you soon, and Merry Christmas!

Autumn Season

Opening times: WINTER OPENING TIMES NOW IN EFFECT

Monday-Saturday: 9:30 – 16:00, Sunday: 10:00 – 16:00

From now until the end of October, we’ll have a full range of pansy and viola colours, as well as (due to high demand!) a far greater volume of dwarf wallflowers.

cheiranthus_cheiri_l_orange_bedder_dsc00904

Cheiranthus cheiri. Flowers from autumn until well into the following summer.

We’re also stocking a far greater number and variety of year round salvia. Two of my favourite are available now,

salvia_microphylla_lutea_cerise_form_2__resized

Salvia Microphylla ‘wild watermelon’

And-

red_salvia_gregii_1024x1024

Salvia Greggii, wonderfully fragrant, surprisingly hardy.

These will be in stock most of the autumn alongside the usual range of calluna heather, goldcrest conifers, cyclamen, and much more. We now have a full stock of planted hanging baskets, and new this year, theme planted wooden barrel planters for only £15.

Let’s hope the autumn sun continues!

See you on the nursery,

Max.

Off season

The busy time for planting is over. Although the stock on the nursery is significantly less in the off season, we still have some excellent plants. Such as-

pel grand ivy pink

pelargonium (geraniums)

Which are excellent to fill in any summer gaps, and are still only 60p each. Further, we have an excellent selection of drought tolerant bedding begonia, 6 varieties of heuchera, and some beautiful-

Screenshot_20190625-142720_Chrome.jpg

Dahlia (available in various colours)

So- although the main thrust of the season is over, there is still plenty of interest.

On our growing site we are preparing to grow nursery stock shrubs, bulbs, and pansies- which will be ready for the next best time on the nursery- September/ October.

 

 

 

Bedding plant season

It’s that time of year when all is colourful. The nursery is no exception. We are, and will be fully stocked until at least July, with the best selection in May and early June.  Notable highlights are a fabulous crop of geranium-

20190515_102717.jpg

pelargonium h. Zonals ‘violet

… which we stock in 10 different colours. Equally eye catching are our range of osteospermum, including my personal favourite,

20190505_082639.jpg

osteospermum ‘blue eyed beauty’

These are only 2 of hundreds of different lines. So if you need seasonal colour of any sort; tubs, baskets (especially our range of illumination begonia), planters, shrubs, perennials and more, do come and see us!
