WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING?:
Clean up time around the nursey, leaves everywhere to collect up and we've even had some good enough weather to do some painting. Don't forget we have a landscape service with all the expentise to help organize your garden. We offer prunning, spraying and advice for anyone requiring help with their section. Mothersday this weekend, time to buy something for mum, or even bring her down to the nursery for an outing on sunday. We have "everything" in our gift shop. In flower we have Cyclamen, Roses, Cushionmums or if in doubt, gift vouchers are always handy. Polyanthus are in flower now, great for pots, good colour for over winter and there's a few pansies that do well in cooler conditions. There's still a few vege plants going into glasshouses, and shallots are now available. Broadbeans are selling well as are lupins and mustard. Peastraw is selling by the truck loads. Some sheep pellets and blood and bone is also a good addition to the garden to help build up the organic material. We have good supplies of blueberrys at the moment and the cranberrys are full of fruit. Spring bulbs are still in store for another month and the lily bulbs have just arrived, so there's always something to plant, no matter what the season.
 
WHAT SHOULD YOU BE DOING?:
Planting spring bulbs and shallots. Mulching your garden with peastraw to help suppress weeds over winter. Cleaning up leaves from spouting and drains. Spray roses with lime sulphur to control next years pests and diseases. Fertilize Rhodos and Camellias as they are making flowerbuds now. Read from oue catalogues and place an order.
