September

The tawny owls are very vocal in the evenings, there seem to be several different calls.

The hummingbird hawkmoth visited the Buddlejas in pots but didn't stay long enough for me to photograph it!

With the heavy dews most mornings, the spiders' webs along the nursery fence seem to glisten in a magical way.

Autumn 2014

We have been amazed at the exceptional growth, especially in the borders and have had to use more Snape Stakes than ever before. They are so great to use and soon disappear amongst the foliage so you don't realise they are there!

The nursery garden is still full of wonderful colour and the michaelmas daisies are just beginning to show their true colours, a great attraction to the butterflies and bees.

We are busy propagating plants for next year and potting bulbs, an exciting time!
