All above information from http://www.gardenersworld.com/what-to-do-now/ & are in no way based on our current stock.
Most of us in south have woken up to a pleasant surprise today. It seems we have a reprieve from the wind. It looks like things may stay that way for a while so we hope you all have chance to mend your fences & have a tidy up.
On the nursery much remains the same. Spring prep’ continues with more young plants due for delivery. It wont be long before bedding plants & patio plants are ready for early sales. Some of our own grown perennials have enough root & are ready to sell. The first examples are on show now including lamprocapnos (dicentra). alliums & few hardy geraniums.
The shrub area is looking full with plants such as camellia & magnolia putting on a show. Rhododenrons are not far behind, budding up nicely. A delivery of roses arrived on Thursday last week so stock levels are currently very good.
We are at the time of year when many of the plants you love are ‘on the brink’ of being ready to sell. Just a little more patience is required as a lot of them will be ready during April. Please remember though, that early sales of these are intended for folks who are able to offer frost protection or those who have #gardens in town where the weather effects are less harsh. Many annual plants such as busy lizzies, bedding begnias etc are recommended for safe outdoor planting during the month of May.
In the mean time, we have managed to source a few spring themed hanging baskets for you. Ideal for adding a splash of colour & bridge the gap before summer selections are available. Prices from £11.99 (for 12” baskets).
The last seed potato list update will be done today. After this week we will be removing the list from our website as levels will be too low to warrant the time used keeping the list current. http://www.clockhousenursery.co.uk/seed-potatoes
That is all for now but please keep an eye on our social activity as we will endeavour to post all significant news for you.
Happy Gardening Everyone.
Garden retail like it used to be.
Here at Clockhouse Nursery we pride ourselves in providing reasonably priced plants & the products you need to grow them effectively.
That is all.
So, no need to wade through the tide of unnecessary paraphernalia that you will find in most modern garden centres.
No need to worry about parking either as we have over 150 spaces available.
Not many Garden Centres can boast over ninety years of history, and yes, we have seen many changes over that period. Indeed change will continue as we strive always to supply the best in plants and facilities. One thing, however, will never change:
The core philosophy first introduced by Archibald John Mills way back in 1928 remains - the philosophy that built the company’s reputation, sustains it now, and will guide it in the future:
The best way to keep gardeners happy is to offer them plants of the highest quality, sold at reasonable prices.Read more
