Autumn - At Last!

After a gorgeous (and unseasonally warm) September, October arrived with more than just a little bit of rain. 'Biblical' would best describe 1 October - which not so conveniently was the first day of our two day annual Chilli Fest! Thankfully gardeners and chilli fans alike are not put off by a 'little' rain and so many, many hundreds braved the weather for a little bit of Chilli tasting and to peruse our numerous Food and Craft stalls. On the Sunday the sun well and truly shone and our visitor numbers swelled to well over 1000! From visitor and stall holder alike we were complimented with comments such as best Chilli Fest ever - and we managed to raise over £240 for the Mission to Seafarers from donations for Chilli tasting!

With over half the stalls who attended this year's Chilli Fest having already booked for next, the 7 & 8 October promises to be an even bigger and better Chilli Fest - so get those dates in your diary now!

And after the craziness of Chilli Fest normality returns to the nursery. Considering that for the amateur October is the month when physical effort starts to reduce, for us it a really busy month as we prepare for the forthcoming Autumn and bare root Winter season - as well as tidy up and go through all our other plants. With a bit of luck there will be a day or two at the end of the month when the whole nursery will be tidy and organised - all at the same time"!

You should be planning where to plant and preparing the areas in readiness - and getting your orders in as soon as possible - the earlier we receive your order the 'higher up the dispatch list it will be so the earlier you will get it. Autumn and early Winter is the perfect time for planting bare root fruit for several reasons, as the still warm soil (especially this year as it is so mild) encourages the roots of trees, bushes and canes to start to grow - making establishment all the more quicker come the Spring. And come next 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).

Be sure to keep up to date with where we are with our sowings and propagation at the nursery by following us on Twitter, Facebook or Google+ as we post our daily updates and general banter with a grin.
