This Week at the Nursery 11/01/2016Over the past couple of months everyone has been working flat out to get the bare root roses potted up and sent out. This is still ongoing as the roses were late going dormant and we are still receiving them from the growers.
We are pleased to see that the roots from the trees that were removed, had not pierced the clay cap in the pond. It has continued to fill up with the constant rains and is close to bursting the banks at one end! Perhaps we ought to start calling it a lake! The planned rill is most definitely needed! Spring is not so far away now and planning and planting of the banks will soon be under way.
The unseasonably warm weather has meant that our gardens at the nursery have been in constant colour. The sweet peas kept going right into December with virtually no dead heading required. The calendula, although a little leggy now, are happily producing a never ending supply of oranges and yellows.
