Summer 2011

Despite the hideous winter, we have now fully recovered!

The nursery has been cleared of all the plants that didn’t make it through the winter. John has made vegetable boxes out of old pallets, which have been filled with some of the ‘expired’ plants’ soil, and has used them to plant some vegetables (radishes, carrots, broad beans, runner beans, beetroot) for us.

We decided, as we weren’t sure what had survived, not to publish a paper copy of the catalogue this year. This has turned out to be quite a good thing, as plants such as the Salvia’s were showing no sign of life in Janruary when we would usually send it to print, but by April, they were shooting and are now in flower.
