You may know that the first week of May is National Nurseries Week, a time to celebrate some of the best plant growers in the UK.
So to help you choose where to buy your plants, here are three nurseries you may never have heard about before…
Primarily focused on herbaceous perennials, vegetable plugs too.
Walled garden with over 100 acres of field grown trees and shrubs.
Specialists in drought tolerant herbaceous and architectural plants.
… get to know your local nurseries – you’ll get better advice, better service and better plants.
What more can you ask for?
… and for something related, but a bit different…
I was asked by the European Boxwood & Topiary Society to help out with answering a common question – How to sharpen your shears? So we spent a fun day making a video, that hopefully will help you make sure you have sharp, shiny blades to do your topiary pruning with. And you can find here more examples of the topiary I make with my sharp blades.
You can get a ticket for this new talk I’m giving at the European Boxwood And Topiary Society here – TALK TICKETS It is on the 25th August at 6pm. It should be great fun and I’m very excited to be sharing some recent thoughts about topiary with people – and how it might work in a modern garden.
