No Sign Of A Drought!

A fortnight into February and the rains and wind continues - is there no let up? We've given up with the idea of our usual 'look round the nursery' video update - as its just not dry enough long enough to do anyhting.

If anyone so much as mentions 'hosepipe ban' this coming July or August...

Thankfully we have had one or two dry and still days - and it was during one of these we were able to drop the side vent of our heated greenhouse and make the vent gear repair. Involving all of us on the nursery for an hour to lower it safely, it was only then that Serena and I realised how lucky we had been in managing to lift and tie it shut on our own on Christmas Eve after the storm overnight! We have been lucky, and far luckier than many. For our gardening friends that are still suffering we really do feel for you, and sincerely hope things improve soon!

The gardening year marches on, and here on the nursery we are up to our ears in production! The bulk of our Chillies have germinated and have been transplanted, our first batches of Brassicas have been pricked out - and the prop beds are groaning with successional sowings or ornamental and vegetables alike. Its that time of year where we could do with 'just a bit more space', if we had that bit more space we'd only fill it up!

As far as outdoor jobs are concerned we're obviously a little bit behind! But that can't be helped. Instead we've 'jiggled' our job schedules and have started containerising grapes and fruit trees for the Spring. And that is about all we and other can do - work with the weather as best we can!

Be sure to follow all our antics at the nursery on Twitter @Victoriana_NG - for daily updates and nursery news tweeted with a grin.
