We have recently had some warm, wet and cold days all in quick succession but it is officially spring!
At the end of the winter early flowering cherry trees are especially welcome. Some of the best include Prunus Okame, Prunus cerasifera nigra and Prunus blireana, next comes Prunus Accolade. The autumn flowering cherry 'Prunus subhirtella Autumnalis' flowers in spring too. There is a cherry tree for every garden - and patio!
Just a dusting of snow here today but very icy conditions, so take care everyone! We are delivering as normal.
We hope you had a wonderful Christmas break and wish you a happy and healthy new year.
The middle of the winter is an ideal time for planting - trees and shrubs are dormant and that means less stress when transplanting - as long as soil conditions are suitable (not waterlogged or frozen). So we are busy packing bare-root plants for despatch while container grown trees and shrubs are due in stock from the growers throughout the month.
As always we are very happy to discuss your requirements and wish you a successful year in the garden and landscaping!
