Have been meaning to contact you for ages to thank you Serena for packing up the three fruit trees which we collected enroute from France on 31st March. I planted the trees two days later and they are doing well.Very many thanks.

It has been an incredibly busy year for us - we haven't seemed to stop since coming back after the Christmas break...
But now, as the planting and sowing season takes its natural early Summer break, we get a chance for a break too! Not a break in the true sense of the word - more a chance to draw breath, take stock of where we are and plan for the weeks and months ahead.
The warm weather has meant that everything in our veg tunnel is growing at an incredible rate - it looks like we're on target for our Tomato Tasting Day on the 15 August and should have just under 80 varieties on taste. Similarly the Chillies and Peppers are starting to get into their stride now, ensuring our September Chilli Fest will be a more than hot event! Full details of both of these can be found on our Forthcoming Events page - do please come along if you can!
Outside the veg garden has also caught up from our late start and now, like everyone else, we can start to reap the rewards - the 'hungry gap' has most certainly passed!
Be sure to follow all our antics at the nursery on Twitter, Facebook or Google+ for daily updates and general banter posted with a grin.
