Journal of a rose gardener...to pot or not to pot 21/07/16
We are often asked by customers whether they can place the rose which they have chosen in a pot in the garden. If the rose is a patio (for example. Diamond, Elizabeth, Queen Mother) , compact floribunda (Ballerina, Darcy Bussell, Flower Carpet) or compact climber, (Cinderella, Good as Gold, Star Performer) it will be happy in a pot, but hybrid tea roses, larger climbers and ramblers will struggle.

What To Do In The Garden In March
The Gardens are starting to awaken and colour is now returning. The snowdrops are out up the back drive and the crocus in the garden are opening in the sunlight. The daffodils are showing their heads too! Although the days are cold it's time to start getting back out into the garden. When you get to work, with the winter sun on your back, it's actually quite pleasant out there!

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!
