  • Time to trim Viburnum tinus

    Viburnum tinus is a versatile evergreen shrub that can be used for hedging or pruned into topiary shapes - spheres or half-standards.

    Pink buds stay on all winter and cream flowers show in spring. After the flowers have finished they can be pruned to retain the shape.

  • Newly planted trees and the weather

    The weather continues to keep us guessing!

    We have had a very dry winter, a very warm spell in spring and also some hard frosts at night. Recent showers haven't penetrated the soil to any great depth.

    Newly planted trees will need watering, even after rain, check the soil moisture a couple of inches down and water appropriately, click here to read our watering advice information sheet.

    The warm weather in spring encouraged fresh new growth that was vulnerable to frost damage - and we had at least a couple of nights of very hard frost.  Luckily hardy trees and shrubs can cope with short periods of frost but you may see symptoms such as browning or scorching of the leaves.

    Advice for young plants Frost damage on Hydrangeas

    For example, this year we have seen evidence of frost damage on Acers, Davidia, Photinia and Hydrangeas. If there is damage to the whole leaf this can be pruned off but leave only partially damaged leaves on the plant as they will continue to photosynthesize. As long as the plant has sufficient water and nutrients and as temperatures warm up new growth should continue.

  • Don't miss out on bare root plants

    We are nearly at the end of the season for bare-root plants. When the sun comes out and temperatures increase plants start new root and shoot growth and should be in the ground!

    We can supply bare root trees and hedge plants up to the end of March and maybe just into April depending on demand and weather conditions.

    So if you have a new hedge to plant or an established hedge to gap up, don't miss out this season, contact us by telephone, on the web or visit the nursery. We generally like some advance notice for packing but we can often supply small quantities at short notice.

  • Something special

    We have some fabulous new specimen plants in the nursery.

    Drawing many comments is the shrub Edgeworthia chrysantha which has silky buds in late winter opening to yellow sweetly  scented flowers in spring before the leaves appear.  Also called the Chinese Paper bush, it prefers a sunny and sheltered site, well-drained but moist soil and grows to around 1.5m with a 2m spread.
