September on the nursery

A busy month!

September is one of our busiest months for every sort of propagating and growing. We are potting the bulk of our plants ready for next season including lots of bulbs. We take a lot of cuttings this month to overwinter in the prop house and the seedlings we pricked out earlier in the month are growing away well.

The plants that used to be called Aster but now ought to be known as Symphyotrichums (though I think to us they will always be Asters!), are really coming to the fore this month and providing some wonderful late colour to the borders.


Some of the plants that are in flower now


Primula vulgaris
 On our Open day in August, a customer very kindly handed to Steve’s brother two beautiful wildflower books which they asked him to give us. We would love to know who gave them so if you read this, please let us know!
