Our Feedback
I just wanted to thank you so much, firstly for dealing with my order so promptly (ordered Thursday, delivered the following Tuesday!!) and for sending me such beautiful, healthy willows. They are now in place and I look forward to my living hedge, screening my driveway from my neighbours. Thank you again for such fantastic service and I will be glad to recommend you to my friends.

The Autumn Tidy Up Starts

And so Chilli Fest 2017 has been and gone! Yet again we managed to start with a wet and soggy Saturday, but that is the danger of having a Chilli Festival so late in the year - but as our Festival is all about Chillies, and the tasting and viewing of lovely ripe fruits we can't do it any earlier as they simply aren't all ripe any earlier. 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 managed to come out for a little while and our visitor numbers swelled even further! From visitor and stall holder alike we were complimented with comments such as this was our best Chilli Fest to date - and the best Chilli Fest they had ever been to! It's great to receive such compliments and makes all the effort so worthwhile. Better still, this year we managed to raise £984.87 for the Mission to Seafarers!

With some of our stallholders who attended this year's Chilli Fest having already booked for next, the 6 & 7 October 2018 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 tidying 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).
