What a very weird 2020 season this has been for everyone! All but one event cancelled, but we did manage to sell at the plant event at Athelhampton House a couple of weeks ago…and BOY how we enjoyed it and so did everyone who attended I’m certain, customers and other plants people. It was a perfect day with glorious Autumn weather and fab sales!
The end of the season is here for us-the plants are looking ropey and so am I! It’s time to try and motivate myself to belatedly Spring clean the house and do a bit of decorating. The nursery will be re-opening in April, all being well.
Many thanks to all our lovely customers who have supported us during this most odd time of selling from the front of the house contact free. We really hope you’ve pleased with the plants that you’ve bought from us.
We’re sad to report thatMapperton House & the event organisers have decided to cancel the plant fair that was planned for this coming Sunday.
Please find a link below to find all the info about getting a refund.
We’re sad not to be able to sell at this event and to see all the lovely customers we always see there and who I know will be very disappointed not to be going plant hunting! Wishing everyone better times in 2021.
This is a reminderthat our first, and penultimate, plant event of this totally weird season is a week today at Athelhampton House on Sunday 13th Sept, between 10-3. Tickets will need to be pre-booked unless you are a Plant Heritage member.
We’re really looking forward to seeing everybody but please be aware that we still need to ”Be Alert” as care is needed to protect ourselves and others around us from the Covid-19 virus.We are expecting to be able to arrange our stand so customers can adopt a one way route. Hand sanitiser will be available and although we still prefer payment by cash, contact free card payment will hopefully be possible, ofcourse depending on the signal!!
Please remember to keep your distance when enjoying your plant hunting visit.
It’s true to say I really love Salvias. And so do the insects.On a lovely sunny day when there is enough heat to energise the bees, watch as they buzz from flower to flower on the Salvias, and bee amazed as you see them bite a hole in the back of the flower to grab the essential nectar instead of entering the actual flower.
I still have plenty of gorgeous Salvias for sale…3 main varieties…HOT LIPS, AMETHYST LIPS & KISSES & WISHES. These are good size plants-1lt and 2lt and they will flower all the rest of the season if deadheaded, giving wonderful colour to your patios or borders.
Who can resist at 3 for a tenner…yes, that’s 3 for £10, or £3.50 each!
Please email me if you wish to order…email@example.com.
The nursery is remaining CLOSED…so. sorry, no visitors at the moment. We are still operating our successful collection from the front of the property & a free delivery is possible on orders over £20, but only in the local area.
The stunning Salvia Amethyst Lips
Hot Lips, Amethyst Lips, Kisses & Wishes…3 for £10
Here we are at the end of week 12 of lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 2m distance between us and mega handwashing has become a way of life. Rainbows are still very much evident and we wish we could see to the end of this particular one. But I fear there is no end. Life when shielding stretches on into the distance too, as the dates given seem to be extending- Wales is 16th August now & we expect an update on Monday for England. Fear is still palpable for patients with blood cancer, who would have an extremely poor prognosis should they end up in ICU when positive for Covid 19.
Northbrook Nursery will be remaining CLOSED to visitors for the foreseeable future but ofcourse we still have plenty of plants to sell contact-free from the front of the property & there is a free local delivery offered, on a Sunday only, on orders over £20. Many thanks to all my lovely customers who have bought in this strange way so far this season & have given lovely feedback on how pleased they are with their plants.
