January 31th 2019

What an amazing month January was! It has been brilliant weather for planting and so mild, the grass in our own garden is growing as we look at it and we have been tempted to run around it with a lawnmower!

We even tackled a huge earth moving project here in the nursery to make room for better parking and we just got it finished before the weather broke and the ground went to slush.

However this cold snap is reassuring and welcome, it will slow down the tree buds that are threatening to burst and stop those eager daffodils in their tracks!

We continue to process and ship out orders once our own nursery is not frozen but if in this cold spell you would like to place your order but delay the delivery, just drop us an email and we will do what we can to accommodate you.

Thoughts on Autumn Colour

I love this time of year.

If the weather is decent and Autumn storms haven’t denuded the branches, you will more than likely get a beautiful display of colour on those varieties that can offer it. Some trees and shrubs who have stood there most of the year unnoticed suddenly more then earn their place by blazing beautiful shades of orange, red and yellow.

This has been a great year for colour, the Red Oak, Quercus rubra which I am constantly reminded is planted too close to the house has yet again given a fine display, I find it is more a deep rusty red then the scarlet reds that the equally lovely Pin Oak (Quercus palustris) gives. The Pin Oak is a great grower in the more acidic parts of the country, it will thrive in a damp spot and there is plenty gardens and fields that can offer that.
