Well we had a blast at the Harrogate Flower Show, even with the rain! It’s all over now until the Spring show 2018!

We’re now over in Ireland at the National Ploughing Championships with a our faithful Mascot ‘Daisy the Cow’. Daisy travels everywhere with us. If you spot her on your travels when visiting our stands, do take a photo and send it over to us on Facebook #SpotDaisy

Next we are exhibiting at the RHS Malvern Flower Show for all your spring flowering bulb needs. We have some great Hyacinth bulbs that have been prepared to have indoors for Christmas or just plant them in your garden (or pots on your patio) for a lovely burst of colour in the spring.

Don’t forget we have all our Spring bulbs available online to order now and we will be starting to dispatch at the end September!

Harrogate Flower Show is set to be another great one this year and we are ready to see everyone, so we do hope you pop by our stands. We will be outside selling bulbs and other summer flowering plants, and inside the Plant Pavilion at stand 37 (see below) with our fragrant display of lilies – you can’t miss us with the huge array of glorious colours and scent! The show is on from today until Sunday 23rd April!

Before everyone comes in, we got to have a wander around the grounds and see some stunning plants and displays. Here’s a sneak peek into what you can expect at this year’s Harrogate Flower show.

While having a look at some of the amazing exhibits set up around the site, Loraine couldn’t resist getting a photo with some of the amazing dresses created by award-winning Christchurch, NZ costumier and artist Jenny Gillies. Jenny combined her love of gardens and flowers to create a range of floral gowns for this years spring theme, ‘HortCouture”. Each dress is fabulous and a true work of art.

There’s a new plant pavilion, some amazing spring show gardens, tips on how to get the best out of your kitchen gardens, gardening talks and more. It promises to be a great show, so do pop by and say hi if you’re about.

 

We are very happy to announce we received a Premier Gold award this morning so we are going into the weekend very happy indeed!

At the RHS Cardiff Flower Show 2017

We had a glorious sunny weekend at RHS Cardiff last week, and wanted to share some photos of our outside display, the before and after. Jonathan prepared the outside garden display and selling area while Loraine and Pat were inside with the lily display.
We’ve also had a busy week with online sales as BBC Gardeners’ World featured our gizmo lily bulbs (pictured in bloom below) on Friday night’s episode. If you want to snap some of these up before they’re gone, you better be quick! You can find them for sale online in our shop.
Not only are we busy with the mail order, we are now preparing for the Harrogate flower show which is on next week. We have 3 stands there. No rest for us now that it’s show season! We hope to see some of you there.

Getting Ready for RHS Cardiff Flower Show

RHS Cardiff Flower Show preparations have been well and truly underway in our nursery, for both the show plants and the flowers we are bringing to sell. Here’s a little peak behind the scenes on our nursery floor.

We hope to see some of you at the show this weekend, it’s on from the 7th until the 9th April. You can find us in the Floral Marquee as well as outside with a garden display. There will be plenty of garden talks, and of course flowers for sale to get your Summer garden started.

Don’t forget it’s Easter soon! Flowers make excellent gifts, or if you’re really undecided we have gift vouchers so your friends and family can choose their own bulbs.

Wisley Spring Plant Fair

This past weekend we went to our first show of the season, Wisley spring plant fair. We had some really great weather, with the sunshine and warm spell coming to the UK.

We were so busy we didn’t manage to get many photos of the show, but took these photos showing spring flowers have well and truly come out now! We can’t wait for more to start popping up.

A very big thanks you for those who took the time to stop by our stand and say hello or purchase lily bulbs. We really appreciate it!

Getting Ready for Flower Show Season

We’ve been very busy packing orders and getting ready for our first show of the season this week, March 24th where we will be headed to the Wisley Spring plant fair. It’s a great show to kick off the season and a wonderful place to pick up spring bulbs, seeds and flowers from the many nurseries that attend. We’d love it if you stopped by our booth!

A couple weeks after we are headed to the RHS Cardiff flower show which begins on April 7th. With beautiful show gardens to get inspiration from, interactive talks from gardening experts, and activities for kids, not to mention all the floral displays specialist nurseries like ourselves will be showing. It’s a great day out for the whole family.

We look forward to meeting some of you, and saying hello again to our repeat customers at this years shows!

The show season is upon us…

That’s right, we are back travelling the UK for the show season. We have already been to Wisley and Suffolk this year and next week we are off to Cardiff for the RHS Flower Show Cardiff. The shows are a great day out with plenty of things to see, places to eat and of course, to purchase all your gardening needs. We will be exhibiting our display of Lilies at many of the shows and you can purchase our Lily bulbs from our ‘pick n mix’ style of shop. Look out for our show offers!!  We will also have many other favourite Summer flowering and Spring flowering bulbs available including some unusual varieties. See you at the shows!!

Our Lily Display

We were fortunate enough to have a professional team from Zumm Creative come over to the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show this year and capture some great footage of our lily display and outside Garden where we won a Gold Medal for our lilies and Best Plant Village Exhibit for our garden.

Well done to all – it looks great!
