Rain, Rain & More Rain!

So after the dry Spring and Summer, the first couple of weeks has sure made up for it!

The reality is we needed the rain - it simply was too dry! The ground was like iron and anything in it was suffering from drought, and far from September being an 'Indian Summer' it was bringing on Autumn. But now it would be lovely for the rain to just go away for a bit - the ground is turning to 'chocolate soup' and we just can't get on outside! But one consolation of the constant rains is it has forced us to spend some days inside and get on with some much needed office work - so we have been busy adding new products to our range and updating and adding pictures to our descriptions. As daft as it may sound, its very easy for us to get carried away growing stuff and forget to market it!

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 follow all our antics at the nursery on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram for daily updates and general banter posted with a grin.
