Off Season

There’s never a lot of choice in July and August… But we do have some stock. The last few bits from the bedding-plant season will still be around (providing you’re not picky) until August. We’ll have baskets and tubs for sale, but honestly, if you’ve not planted yet, I’d generally advise waiting until the Autumn bedding in September.

Speaking of which- Our planting schedule for the Autumn begins quite soon- and we’ve got some exciting stuff on it’s way.

Cool wave pansies are revolutionising the autumn hanging basket market. I was skeptical to begin with- the plants looked (individually) like a bad panola with an unusually long inter-node. However, they branch spectacularly, and fill a basket in a matter of weeks.

Alongside these we grow our usual range of pansies, some new colours are coming this year, such as a compact red blotch which seems much improved.

Whilst there’s not a lot going on at the nursery right now- behind the scenes we’re busy. We’re potting well over a hundred lines of shrubs and another hundred or so perennials- all ready in time for late August. Look out for some impressively sized hostas…

See you then.
