Slow start to Spring 2018

March 17, 2018

Shock horror – it’s early afternoon  on a Spring Saturday  and I’m sat at the computer watching the first snow of the ‘mini beast from the east’ fall and put paid to what should be a productive day titivating the garden ready for the season. Thankfully frost damage from the cold snap earlier this month seems to be fairly limited on both garden and Nursery so we are hopeful customers and visitors will find plants up to the standard they expect and which we like to produce.

We have been busy over the last couple of weeks potting a wide range of herbaceous perennials to give an even wider variety over the coming season.  There seems to be no end to the demand for good reliable traditional perennials such as Catmint, Salvias, Heleniums, Phlox and Rudbeckia.  Plus lots of interesting lesser known plants that people love to discover and give me added satisfaction in producing.

The Bothy tea-room should open this coming week – weather permitting.  Garden admission donations this year are to be divided between National Garden Scheme (yellow book), FORCE and Hospiscare.  Suggestion donation to the Garden is £3-50 per person, or £5-00 for the season.  Both Nursery and Garden open as always Tuesday – Friday 9 – 5-00 p.m.

That’s enough typing for one stint!  The snow is easing, the wooly hat and coat are waiting and I must go out to brave the elements!  Hope to see you sometime soon.
