On New Years Eve looking forward to Spring
It is a very wet and miserable New Years Eve as I write this so I thought I would add a few photos to lift the mood and look forward to the Spring. Now we have passed the shortest day we will soon be able to enjoy more time outside which as we know is beneficial to both physical and mental well being. Soon we will be able to enjoy auriculas in all their colourful glory and it always amazes me how such delicate looking plants can survive freezing temperatures, they do not like continuous wet however. Keep in touch on Facebook as I will have some for sale in vintage terracotta pots which is the best way to display them, on steps as shown or perhaps in a purpose built theatre. Bear in mind when we do get sun they do not like intense exposure to the heat.
A simple table display like this will add some colour to the patio. In Spring I will have lovely pots of Iris Reticulata, Crocus, Tete a Tete daffodils and gorgeous Ranunculus for sale in ceramic and terracotta pots. Again keep an eye on both the website and Facebook for details.
An old galvanised bucket planted with heuchera, ivy and fern can light up a dark corner - follow the link to see details. https://www.4homeandgarden.org/garden-items
These cute bricks planted with sempervivums are hardy and make a very attractive feature.
I will be busy in the coming weeks planting seeds for my cutting garden ready to have more lovely home grown cut flowers for sale. If you would like to order a bunch just let me know the day before you would like to collect so they can be picked at the optimum time and conditioned. I do not use chemicals to prolong their life as some florists do and those imported from abroad.
I can supply them in a hand tied bunch like this or arranged in an attractive vase which you can either keep or return for a refill saving you the trouble of arranging them. As I have just a small cottage garden supplies may be limited so to avoid disappointment please order.
I will also have plants for sale including some more unusual ones again supplies will be limited. There will be quite a few hostas and bearded irises, dierama (angel's fishing rods) and primula denticulata.
A few shrubs will also be available and plants to help you create lovely colourful borders like this.
