Good Monday morning folks. We are barely out of summer & already it is time to start thinking about winter #beddingplants. Our first #owngrown selections are available now including mixed colour #violas & #pansies, #cineraria & #cyclamen. One colour boxes will follow shortly (approx 10 days) including #wallflowers.
Many of these benefit greatly from ‘early’ #planting as the #growth that they achieve before winter, serves them well when the cold kicks in.
Thinking even further ahead, we now have a large range of spring flowering #bulbs available including all of the favourites like #daffodils, #tulips, #alliums, #crocus, #autumncrocus etc. We are still expecting a few more deliveries over the next couple of weeks which will complete the range, but folks have started buying already.
On the nursery we continue potting on #shrubs & #perennials aimed at late season sales this year & stock for next spring. Some of the #plants potted last month will be ready for sale in September plus we will shortly be able to supplement stocks with new season selections from UK #fruit & #ornamental #tree growers. One of our number is currently on a buying trip looking for extra stock, so we should be able to tease you with some ready-to-sell fresh plants very soon. Not that we lack stock at the moment…. far from it in fact.
In general, now is a good time to prune back some of your unruly #evergreens which, you will have doubtless noticed, are putting on a real growth spurt. Summer pruning wisteria is also advised cutting back new shoots by approx 20cm. Keep up with dead heading #flowering plants as this will help prolong flowering, as long as weather remains mild.
That is all for now. Please keep your eyes on social media for the odd item of interest this week.
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
