Before we know it Chelsea Flower Show will be upon us and we are growing the plants for our good pals Chilstone and their trade stand. They were awarded the tremendous 5 Star Award last year, so we are looking to emulate that again.
We’re proud to be growing for John Everiss and his amazing garden sponsored by Myeloma UK. Hopefully we can get the result we need to thrust the charity into the Limelight. (www.myeloma.org.uk)
We are also growing for the designer Nic Howard and the David Harber garden – our first main avenue garden! Wish us luck!
Lastly, we are also helping our Ali Dempster from Sandstone with another two trade stands.
The signs are out, the chairs and tables set up, plants are behaving themselves and Jasper the nursery puppy is going bonkers! We are welcoming all this Saturday and Sunday - including well behaved dogs. So please bring yourselves, a friend or two and join us to eat cake, drink tea and purchase some of our beautiful plants. (Feel free to bring some clear skies and sunshine too please)
What the heck is happening to our weather at the moment!! This mini Beast of the East is a rotter! We were just getting used to Spring warmth & sunshine and now this again!! Remember Easter is looming, so get your orders in – plenty looking good despite the weather!
Please could you bear with us the next couple of weeks – we are expecting our first child, so it could all be a bit topsy turvy for us!! We have two new members of staff on hand to help the process and hopefully everything should run smoothly!
We say farewell this week to the lovely Cas, who isn’t leaving – oh no! She is just taking a break to prepare for the imminent arrival of baby Sutcliffe. We send her our best wishes, hugs, love and a HUGE supply of chocolate. We will miss her so much.
However, we are celebrating the arrival of a new member of staff – Warren Young. Warren joined us Monday 12th in the role of Deputy Nursery Manager – Welcome and Good Luck!
