This coming Sunday, April 14th 2019, sees us off for our first event of the season to Beaminster near Dorchester, to the lovely Mapperton House. This event is the spring plant fair, open between 10-4 £3 each entry, in aid of Dorset Wildlife Trust 🙂
We’ll be bringing along some fab 5lt Delphiniums plus some smaller ones, Scabiosa, Erysimum, Erythronium Pagoda and lots of other goodies.
It’s the 1st of February today and it’s a snow day-must say we rarely get enough snow here to severely disrupt life and the snow today is wet and melting fast. Very pretty to see though and interesting to watch all the different birds visiting the feeders in the back garden.
Our new plant season will start on April 14th with the first charity plant fair of the season to be held at Mapperton House near Beaminster, Dorchester, 10-4pm.
The nursery will be open to visitors between 10-4pm on Thurs & Friday at the end ofApril, depending on the weather.Any queries before then are, ofcourse, most welcome. Either email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01202695256 and I will be pleased to help if I can!
We will again be selling a good variety of plants this season, starting at the earlier events with a choice of the popular 9cm perennials-mix & match 3 for £10 or £3.50 each, alongside all the other larger perennials ranging from Tradescantia to Digitalis to Echinacea. A large percentage of our plants are essential food for bees, butterflies and all other insects. A lot can be grown in sun/part shade, some love full sun and we do have some suitable just for shade.
Hello and Season’s Greetings to everybody all over the world that visit our website.
Wishing you all a peaceful, relaxing and wonderful Christmas wherever you are!
The new growing season will be upon us really fast once we arrive in the New Year and we will be selling at most of out usual events and a few new ones. Thank you to everyone that has purchased plants from us in 2018 and we hope you are very pleased with them.
This coming Sunday, 16th Sept, is the date for our last plant event of this season to be held at Mapperton House near Beaminster between 10-4. Entry is £3 and the chosen charity is Cancer Research UK-such a worthwhile charity, so come and support their vital work.
This is always a popular event which finishes the season for many of the different nurseries that will be attending.
The Sawmill Cafe will be open for lunches and snacks and the gardens are very worth visiting too. Set in a peaceful valley, the main formal garden is down some steep steps and is planted with both exotics and interesting perennials.
Our penultimate event is happening tomorrow at Athelhampton House between 10am-3pm. This is run by Plant Heritage and there will be plenty of different types of plants to choose from, so come along before the weather breaks!
