BLUEBERRY PLANTS NOW AVAILABLE

By Jill | November 27th, 2012

One of the most popular plants we stock are blueberries – we never seem to have enough of them!  We continually sell out and re-stock  – we now have them available again for planting before Christmas.

If you have never tried a blueberry before – then do give them a go!  Apart from the fact that the fruits are jolly expensive in the shops – the plant itself is simply lovely – with heather-like bell-shaped flowers in spring – and excellent red and orange autumn leaf colour – what more could you ask for from a plant!!  The only requirement they have is that they need an acidic soil – if yours is alkaline – fear not – they can be grown in pots or tubs of ericaceous compost – with Christmas around the corner – what a brilliant idea for something different for the keen gardener!!!

UNTIL NEXT TIME,

BARE-ROOT HEDGING, SOFT FRUIT AND FRUIT TREES NOW AVAILABLE

By Jill | November 27th, 2012

Despite floods, gales and problems beyond our control, OUR BARE-ROOT HEDGING IS NOW AVAILABLE!!

We have some superb quality plants this year – the wet summer has produced really lovely plants so new hedges planted in the next few weeks will romp away!!  Our popular hedging packs are always in demand so although we aim to be as quick as possible with orders – we do like to dig to order to ensure really-fresh plants  – so since we only have a limited amount of hedging plants pre-lifted  – if you are looking for a significant amount of hedging – please do ring the office and pre-order it to avoid delay. 

We also have our full range of Soft Fruit available – from currants to gooseberries and raspberries.   Bare-root plants tend to be larger than pot-grown and cheaper – so better from the budget point-of view!!

Again, due to the wet summer – our BARE-ROOT FRUIT TREES are also now available, from plums to gages and damsons – cherries, pears and quinces,medlars,almonds – the full ticket – come in and have a look!!

UNTIL THEN,

RICHARD

ASH TREES

By Jill | November 3rd, 2012

Everybody has seen the terrible news in the media about Ash trees and the fungal disease discovered in them recently.  We receive continual updates and bulletins from the Government Agency FERA – and at the current moment – there is a blanket ban on all movements of Ash plants or seeds within the UK.

So until further notice – WE ARE UNABLE TO SELL ANY ASH TREES OR HEDGING WHIPS.  The situation is under constant review – and let us all hope that it is not as bad as the pessimists suggest.   Any customers with existing orders for the coming planting season – please contact the office.

This disease has no effect on the Mountain Ash – Rowans – Sorbus family.  Mountain Ash is simply a common name – and it is not a true Ash – and therefore sales and that tree remain unaffected.
