Nursery Update

4434At last!  My parents are in their lovely new bungalow but the building work took so much longer than anticipated and the driveway-in still needs some work. Our new entrance into to the nursery is now through our moved sales shed and brings you straight onto the nursery beds. We are still replanting and tidying up but hope that you will like our new setup.

Our (primula) auriculas have been fantastic this spring and we have been lucky enough to be given some beautiful new doubles (quite a lot actually) by Richard Austin, for which we are very grateful.

We still give talks and are happy to have groups here, either to look around or to have a talk, or both, with coffee and cake provided.
Just enquire. (01746 716 454).
