Spring is here!

I had an operation (nothing sinister) at the end of August and have been on light duties and confined to the house for the past couple of weeks. It is great being able to go outside again, enjoy the lovely spring weather and see the garden emerging from its winter dormancy. Spring is definitely here, our clematis is in full flower, the plums are in blossom and our hydrangeas in the garden are bursting forth into growth. It does seem very early this year.

It is a busy time of the year with the weeds starting to grow, and all the potting to do. It is exciting too though finding all the cuttings that we propagated last year and seeing them emerging as new young plants. Many of them are new species or varieties that we have not grown before such as Illicium henryi a lovely evergreen shrub with salmon pink coloured flowers; Dichroa ‘Pink Candy’ and Hydrangea ‘Glyn Church’ an outstanding new serrata variety. We will have these and many more available on our website and in our catalogue later in the season.
