This Week at the Nursery 29/02/2016
The rabbit fence is complete and so far, "touch wood", we've had no trouble from our furry friends!
The pond has been fenced back in to make it dog and child safe! But don't worry we will be creating seating areas for you to sit and look out across the water. As I'm sure you can all appreciate, the wet weather has set us back with the planting schedule. So it will be full steam ahead now the weather has improved!
The daffodils are showing their heads and a few have opened out. It won't be long before we have a sunny sea of yellow out there! In the tearoom garden we have planted a jonquilla mix that will come later than the common daffs. But they will be well worth the wait as the scent is to die for!
If you have been waiting for our pots to arrive, we are expecting our first delivery early march. They are traditional glazed planters in 5 colour choices. And by popular request the handmade, rustic bell pots will be back. Offering simple but classic design, made using traditional methods. Both styles will be available in a range of sizes.
Some of you may remember this rather imposing sycamore tree. Well we've had the Bickley Coppicer in to remove him. It has opened out the space and let the light flood into the area. But most importantly has taken the tearoom out of the risk zone during high winds!
Those of you who signed up for one of our discount cards may have noticed that they have expired. When you next visit us please see someone in the shop and they will gladly provide you with a new one.
But before Easter we have Mother's Day! Check out our large range of suitably named roses. Perfect for your wonderful Mum!
In the next blog we will be focusing on what to do in the garden during March. With tips on how to prune and train your roses.
