October on the nursery

Don’t forget we close for the winter soon!

October is a busy month for getting bulbs potted and the nursery tucked up for winter.

Our last trading day this season is Saturday 14th October, after that we are open by appointment on weekdays. We are back to opening hours as usual on 1st February.

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!
