Wednesday 28th January 2009
Big wholesale sale at the weekend. We
have cut prices to wholesale rates to clear our plants, trees and shrubs. Make
sure you come into both garden centres and grab yourself some bargins. Vege
plants have been selling well this week. Gardeners are reaping the benefits
now as their gardens mature. It's great to be able to harvest and eat from
your own produce. The potato crops have been extra good this year with plenty
of rain. This is the best month to plant winter crops, still enough warmth for
growth before winter. Some gardens may need a rest so it's good to sow a green
crop such as mustard or lupins. Peastraw is also good to use as a mulch for
water retention and weed supression. Flower gardens might need a tidy up,
there's still a few summer annuals available, but it won't be long and it will
be time to plant winter flowering plants. The first of the Daffodils,
Anenomes, Ranunuclus and Hyacinths have arrived. Best colour at the moment are
the Agapanthus, we have all colours (blue and white.).
