  • All Change

    With the drop in night temperatures and the onset of autumn it is time to change over the summer display of tender perennials to our hardy spring bedding.

     All the cuttings have been taken and successfully rooted from our collection of tender perennials so they can be removed and taken to the compost heap to make way for the wallflowers, Polyanthus and Myosotis that have been growing on the nursery since early July. Wallflower and Myosotis seeds were sown and small plugs of Polyanthus ‘Crescendo’ (yellow and blue) were purchased from a commercial grower.   

    The beds have been rotovated, raked, trod and fed before the plants were set out and planted (we use about 1300 plants to create our scheme). Along with these we also use coloured schemed cornus to give height;  Cornus alba 'Sibirica' AGM (red), Cornus sericea  'Flaviramea' (yellow), Cornus sericea 'Cardinal' (orange). We also interplant with a selection of bulbs; Tulips, daffodils and grape hyacinths. Read More...
