Good morning #gardeners. Whilst, for some poor folks, the title of this update is a very literal phrase, for us it is more metaphorical. It is, however, quite relevant as we still have much to do in prep’ for the coming summer season. This, in part, is why this weeks update is a few days late.
The picture today is a sneak peak at number 4 greenhouse in which we are working hard to convert the benches so that the house is suitable for retail this year. Number 2 greenhouse has also had a layout change.
We expect more deliveries of young #perennial plants this week as well as our last lorry from Italy bringing extra #shrubs and #climbing #plants. All will need sorting, potting & labelling. So, even if the weather has meant that the last week has been quite in terms of customers, we are still VERY busy on the nursery.
The sales areas are looking fabulous. #Primulas, #polyanthus, #bellis daisies & Tete a Tete #dafodils adding some bright spring colours. The shrub area is filling back up nicely as we bring stock back out from winter protection & perennial plant selection is beginning to increase. We have plenty of bush & climbing #roses and soft #fruit. Patio fruit #trees are here too.
We must warn you that #seed #potatoes are selling FAST. We will endeavour to update our online list before the coming weekend. Number 1 greenhouse, where they are located, will be swapped over to #herbs in only a couple of weeks time, & #vegetable plants will follow at some point in April.
That is all for now folks. We hope that you come through the next round of wind & rain unscathed.
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
