A Perfect Start To The New Year!

After a thoroughly wet, windy and miserable December, the first of January arrived - dry, bright and still - the perfect start to a New Year!

Lets hope it continues so we can get out and get on - certainly we need to in our own garden!

Here at the nursery we're closed for a few more days - so not much to report.

Whilst Christmas Day afternoon was always considered the traditional time for sowing onion seed we have to admit that we didn't sow ours - that's a job for next week, along with masses of hardwood propagation to produce plants for next year. There is of course still plenty of time to sow, but the sooner they are in the larger they will be! And that is what the next few weeks are all about - planning ahead so you get the most from your plot that you possibly can.

Whilst one or two things will undoubtedly get confused by the current unseasonably 'warm' weather, now really is the perfect time for planting bare root fruit and hedging. Provided the ground is not frozen solid (and you can get a spade in to plant) fruit trees, soft fruit hybrid berries and canes will all come to no harm by being planted now, and will sit patiently and perfectly still in the ground - waiting for those at first imperceivable (to us) rises in ground temperature. Come the early Spring adventitious root growth will already be underway making for quicker and stronger establishment - and come the Summer that early planting will pay off even further as that greater rooting out will mean less need for watering (but don't forget it completely).

But, as we know only too well from November and December 2012, not everyday at this time of year can be a gardening day, the weather makes sure of that! So on those wet, windy and grotty days now is the time to be looking at our range of Vegetable Seeds and Vegetable Plants and putting together your order; don't keep on putting it off - the sooner its done the sooner you will have your seeds, and on a good day be able to pop in a row of this or that.

Whatever you do, make the most of the good weather days we have and get out into the garden to blow all the cobwebs away - don't pug up indoors all Winter!
