Another Year

…and another catalogue hot off the press.

The good news is that we have 3 new little cats but the bad news is that Tarzan, Tin-Tin and Snowy all had to be put down and sadly Millie has recently been put down too, although we hope to get a new puppy soonEdwina has had another baby, Bethany, so will not be back at work for some time. That just leaves Lilian, John, Sarah and me (Ingrid) to man the fort. Crocosmia weekend was a great success last year so we will be running it again in 2008 on 1st – 3rd August. If anyone would like to receive a reminder of any events or offers from the nursery, just go onto our website www.hillviewhardyplants.com and sign up for our newsletter. Our first RHS partnership day will be on Pruning and the second on Primulas and Auriculas. They will both be hands-on workshops and last all day with a light lunch included.

You may notice quite a few unfamiliar plants this year: John has been busy collecting plants from the Acanthus family, many of which may or may not be hardy. They have been marked with an asterisk (*). It is December and I have just seen a Sollya (planted outside) in flower so hardiness is something I think we all need to experiment with.

Thank you to all our customers (so many of whom are now friends) for your support in 2007 and we look forward to seeing you and to welcoming new visitors in 2008.
