By Paul, 30/03/2018 1:11 pm

It Looks, from the forecast, that we have the best day of the Easter weekend this Easter Sunday for our Craft Market. There will be something for everyone with a diverse range of skilled crafters displaying their wares. We’ve got lots of stock ready to go such as Senettii, Primroses and plenty of bulbs in bud or flower. Spring flowering Heathers will be buzzing with bees when the sun does eventually come out.  There are lots of the standard 9cm pots of Perennials available now at £1.99 or 3 for £5. These are an ideal way of creating beautiful, colourful summer borders.

Rose List 2018

By Paul, 21/01/2018 2:23 pm

We have finally put together our rose list for the 2018 season and this is available as a pdf file below.  This is the list of all the rose varieties that we have potted and stock this season and their current stock levels.  I often hesitate about publishing stock list as our stock can change rapidly throughout the year (You will note that several varieties have already sold out or available in limited numbers already). Therefore I would recommend  you check current stock levels before traveling to avoid disappointment. We have again added some new varieties and a few have been lost from the list due to lack of customer interest or poor performance. After trialing the Renaissance, Delbard and Nostalgic roses last season we have increased the range as they performed so well in 2017. If you are after a particular variety it is always worth an enquiry,  we may be able to order it in for the autumn.
