  • Hydrangeas for summer

    We think Hydrangeas are fabulous summer plants. Hydrangeas tolerate shade, flower profusely and can be used to great effect in flower arranging - fresh or dried.  All Hydrangeas like moist humus rich soil.

    Hydrange macrophylla - Traditional mop head Hydrangeas, can reach 1.5-2m in height depending on variety, they flower from June to September.  Hydrangea "Endless Summer®" can flower for even longer with an extended flowering from late spring into autumn.

    Hydrangea paniculata has long cone like flowers that are white or cream and fade to pink on varieties such as "Pinky Winky" or "Mega Mindy" they prefer more sunlight than H. macrophylla types and are very hardy.

  • 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.

  • Early flowering ornamental cherries

    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!
