We attended the Holton Lee summer fair yesterday and enjoyed ourselves, selling a good number of plants. The star plant for this sale was Salvia Icing Sugar..what a great plant for long flowering in a sunny spot. Have sold out of Salvia Hot Lips now, that has been so popular! Will try and get some more very soon.
Thanks as always to Holton Lee officials for making sure we were safe, as the wind caused a lot of stallholders to actually lose their gazebos in the awful gusts that kept hitting us. I expect a lot were badly bent, but due to the sterling efforts of Bob and our friend Tessa who have created a most unique gazebo for the nursery to use at sales, ours didn’t budge an inch! It was incredible actually but some of the credit must go to the 8inch heavy duty tent pegs which Bob drove in with a mallet- we would recommend them!
Highlights of the day were the great guitar players and singers, the bellydancers who were excellent( Bobs favourite act) and at one stage the organisers had to attempt to round up 5 ponies that fancied having a look round! They looked wonderful cantering up and down the field!
Looking forward to going out selling again, but not sure if it will be before the Purbeck Rally and Autojumble in August.
Visitors are very welcome here- just give me a ring to come and check out my plants! Be very glad to see you. 🙂
