Yes, it’s February again and the Nursery doors are now officially open for the 2019 season – rather a chilly start but we’re looking forward to an exciting time with lots of lovely new plants starting to arrive this month for growing on ready for the much longed for spring, this year we will be stocking over 300 named varieties!
For some inspiration right now we have some lovely Cyclamen coum in pinks and white and a silvery leaved variety too – all out in flower already and they’ll carry on for the next month or two as well. The potted spring bulbs are starting to show themselves and there’s some flower on the Winter Aconites and Snowdrops too. The other favourite for this time of year of course is the Hellebore and ours are just starting to show some colour – white, spotted, dark purple, rose and one with attractively marked leaves, there’s also some good evergreen colour on the Euphorbias with their flower heads just starting to form. For you foodies out there we’ll be stocking some vegetable seeds again this year and our range of hardy herbs is coping well so far with the winter.
We have new opening hours this year, these are:
Wednesday – Friday 9am – 5pm
Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays 10am – 4pm.
If you’d like to visit on a Monday or Tuesday, just call or drop us a line beforehand to make sure we’re there.
We’ll be out and about at shows and events again this year, some old favourites and a few new ones again (always fun!), we’ll be in touch regularly to remind you when and where. The Shows page on the website will have a full list shortly, we’re just finalising a few details. We'll also be updating the Stock list pages soon as well.
All that remains is to wish everyone a happy year of gardening and we’ll look forward to seeing you all soon.
