NEW SPECIMEN STOCK NOW IN

By Jill | October 25th, 2013

This is one of our busiest times of year – and lorries and deliveries of new stock are a regular feature at the moment.

We have just restocked our Specimen Sales Area with some cracking large evergreen plants – so if you are looking for instant screening or a large mature plant for that special place – pop down and see what we have while stocks last.

UNTIL THEN,

APPLE ESPALIERS NOW AVAILABLE

By Jill | October 25th, 2013

We have just had a delivery of 2-tier Apple Espaliers – and they are undoubtedly some of the finest we have seen.

Espaliers are proving more and more popular every year – and it is a great way of growing fruit in a restricted area – against a fence,wall or even trellis.  As well as being fruitful, they are incredibly decorative – giving wonderful blossom in the spring – and even the shape and form in the winter.

If you are looking to plant this autumn – now is a great time – the recent rainfall and the mild weather is ideal for plants to get off to a flying start.  Availability is limited – so make sure you don’t miss out!

REPORT ON APPLE DAY 2013

By Jill | October 25th, 2013

“A wonderful sight” – “Fantastic display” – “We have never seen so many different types of apple!”.   Just a handful of the comments from last Saturday’s Apple Day.  The weather was less than kind – it was very wet in the afternoon – but hundreds of you came down to see us.  We would like to thank you all for supporting us on our busiest day of the year – and for being so patient – there were quite long queues at times – but we did manage to speak to most people!

Apple Day is a great celebration of all things apple – and it is not just about Apple Tasting!  However, there were 120 different varieties available to taste – and judging by the state of the plates at the end of the day – most of them were sampled at some point during the day!

It is a massive event – and there is a huge amount of planning – so a big ‘pat on the back’ to the whole Crown Nursery team – from car parking to teas – everybody played their part.

If you were unable to make it on Apple Day – don’t worry – our Apple Tasting Shed in the Fruit Sales Area still contains over 60 varieties to taste – and we will maintain this for as long as possible.

UNTIL THEN,

Saturday 19th October is National Apple Day and here at Crown Nursery we will be having our own grand celebration of all things apple!

 We are very proud of our collection of apples – and we have 120 different varieties available to taste!! – (if you are here early enough – and they have not all been eaten!!)

 But we also like to have some fun as well – and there will be apple-themed games – plus all of our usual expert advice to help you choose your tree or trees.  We have hundreds of trees to choose from – including some of the best espalier-trained apples we have ever had.

The day runs from 10am to 4pm – entry is free – there is ample car parking – and we will also be offering refreshments  – on an apple theme of course! — and loads more besides.

Come down and join in the fun!

UNTIL THEN,

RICHARD
