April on the nursery


Some of the plants of interest now

The alpines are starting to come into their own, cheerful little Erysimums, Saxifragas, Lithodora, Antennaria, Aubrieta, Iberis and Ipheion all brightening up our days. Many more varieties budded up ready to go!

Erysimum ‘Bowles Mauve’, Doronicum pardalianches and Lathyrus vernus are lovely splashes of early colour for the herbaceous borders.

Narcissus ‘Lemon Drops’, Anemone blandas, Fritillaria meleagris, Leucojum ‘Gravetye Giant’ are just some of the numerous bulbs that are ready to plant.




Primula vulgaris
On our Open day in August last year, 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!
