I wanted to thank you for delivering the "Golden Wedding Anniversary" rose to our friends in Lincoln on their actual Anniversary. It was such prompt and excellent service. They were thrilled with the rose and I am very happy with the service. I shall certainly use you again.

A Positive Outlook

Well, the less said about March the better! After an encouraging early start it deteriorated into the month that we have all just had to endure!

Despite early April being much the same, the outlook is more positive - and that is what we all need - A Positive Outlook! There is no getting away from the fact that the season is going to be delayed this year, but delay does not mean disaster - it just means we all need to be a little more patient. Long term some plants and crops will catch up whilst some will have a later season.

Here on the nursery we have kept up with production so if you have not managed (or lost) early sowings you can quickly catch up by ordering young vegetable plants from us - already hardened off and ready for going straight in the ground. For outdoor sowings direct into the garden, hang on a while until the ground warms up.

The continued cold spell does have one bonus... there is still time to plant bare root fruit and hedging, whatever the gardening magazines may say - remember current issues were written many months ago when weather conditions for April were just a guess!

Now is also a perfect time to fill those hungry gaps in your ornamental borders with young perennials, guaranteeing a show for later in the year even if the weather decides to do something else odd - something that can't always be guaranteed when planting out annual bedding!

And for those who want to take the garden indoors why not turn over a part of your garden or allotment to growing flowers for cutting? Now is the time to be planning and making your sowings - the results will bring cheer and colour to both where they are grown and, when cut, to your house (and don't forget the bees and beneficial insects they will encourage and provide food for).

So, for some, April is going to be the 'start of the gardening year year'; for others it will be the the 'catch up month'. Whichever group you fall into, have a good month and enjoy the garden!
