THE MODERN MINT BLOG
From May 1st – May 7th we will be supporting Britain’s specialist nurseries. Why? Because it is National Nurseries Week!
For more information go to the British Plant and Nursery Guide and help celebrate the best independent, specialist nurseries Britain has. Look out though – you will probably come away with a plant or two…!
Some of our favourite nurseries…
If you have anymore suggestions for your favourite nurseries, send us a tweet!
Recommended Reading (the Marina Christopher book a huge favourite of ours):
On Monday night I gave a talk to the Hardy Plant Society Middlesex. Below are a few links for further information based on some of the ideas discussed in the talk: Real Seeds – a fantastic supplier of fruit and vegetable seeds for growers. Boxwood Caterpillar Advice – from the European Boxwood & Topiary Society. I will also write a little companion piece this winter with more information and some topiary techniques, so watch out for that on this website. Boxwood Lure & Nematodes – my preferred option for dealing with the caterpillar. Discount code for 10% off is EBTSBOX29GBZ …
Some recent work over the last year or so, clipping boxwood and holly hedges, yew topiary on top and fun, organic shapes. Contact me if you need some topiary clipping and we can chat about the possibilities. Darren
