Our lilies captured on film

We thought you might like to see a video of our lilies, alliums and eremurus that we displayed at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show back in 2015. Our friends at The Round Group spent the day with us filming our stands and capturing our stunning flowers on film to share with you. See what you think:

And here’s a throw back to when we were featured on the BBCs Great British Garden Revival with James Wong presenting it. James came to visit our nursery to see how and what we grow. He was fascinated by our lilies and just how easy they are to grow.

Shows, shows and more shows…

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!

 

 

Start of Autumn…

Autumn and what to plant

The temperature is dropping, days are getting shorter and the leaves are changing colour – all signs that summer is drawing to a close. But when does autumn actually start? Well it’s the 1st September if you go by the meteorological calendar or 23rd September based on the Astronimical calendar. If, like us, you’re wondering what the difference is, the meteorological calendar is more simplified and splits up the four seasons into three month blocks and the Astronomers base the date of the seasons upon autumnal equinox, when night and day are roughly equal length. So either way, Autumn is upon us! And its time to start thinking about your Spring garden as our glorious spring flowers like to be planted throughout the Autumn (Sept, Oct, Nov).

Here’s a little break down of what you can plant this Autumn to have some colour in your garden month by month:

January-February: CrocusSnowdrops, 

February-March: Narcissus,  Leucojum Aestivum

 

March-April: Tulips,  Cyclamen,  Puschkinia, Anemone Blanda, Chinodoxa,
Erythronium Pagoda

April- May: FritillariaHyacinthoides Non-Scripta ‘Blue Bells’, Alliums

May +: CamassiaEremurus

Martagon Lilies

We now have our stunning Martagons available to order as well. With a few new varieties to choose from. Our Martagons will also be dispatched in the Autumn for planting throughout the months of Sept, Oct and Nov. Martagons are ideal for woodland type gardens. These special Lilies grow especially well in dappled shade in Humus-rich, Alkaline soil. They naturalize really well and are long lived and hardy.

 

Happy Gardening!
