WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING?:
We've had a busy couple of weeks in the nursery potting, labeling and sorting our new seasons roses. It's still not too late to order, but most growers have limited stock now. The flowering cherries and maples have new supplies been potted and moved into our big tree area. Trees are easily transported at this time of year with no leaves to get damaged. We also sell trees bare root and they can easily be bundled and wrapped for freighting at less cost. Seedling pines and flax fans are also available bare root. Shelter trees such as Cupressus Leylandii and hedging are growing in 1 Litre pots and can be sold and planted any time of the year. Best sales this week are our half price spring bulbs. The first of the seed potatoes are trickling out to thoses early gardeners.
