September Spectacular!!

Very busy month ahead!

It’s difficult to believe it’s September already and the onset of Autumn is well under way! After a very dry year here in the south east, we’ve already experienced one of the wettest Augusts on record! Always a silver lining here at How Green, we have welcomed the rain, as Autumn signifies one of the best times for planting!

With this in mind, we have a lot going on this month. Firstly, we have a trade open day Friday 4th September. Strictly garden centres and garden designers/landscapers are warmly welcome to check out our new stock for the Autumn and into 2016. Special 10% off rate for orders taken on the day and network with tea & cake in our summer house!

Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th we open our doors to the public for our third and final weekend of the year. Take this opportunity to visit a trade nursery, with thousands of perennials, grasses, alpines, topiary and (NEW!!) a selection of shrubs! Great prices and knowledgable staff on hand to help with plant questions and advice. Take in tea & home-made cake in our summer house.

Friday 11th, Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th we head out on the road and are attending two events. Come and see us at the Penshurst Craft Fair, held in the grounds of Penshurst Place. We have a plant stand & show garden with a selection of late season interest alongside our friends Chilstone of Langton Green. The same weekend we also find ourselves exhibiting at Hever Castle and their newly launched Handmade and Homegrown Festival. A selection of local crafts, food and quilting, all held in the magnificent grounds of Hever Castle.

Another String to our Bow!

We can now source high quality Taxus and Buxus

Here at How Green, we pride ourselves on the fact we can supply nearly 4000 different perennials, alpines, herbs and annuals. However, we are always striving to add new lines to our range that we feel would benefit our customers.

Having recently visited many horticultural trade shows, we have met some wonderful growers, not only in the UK, but from all round Europe.

One grower in particular stood out from the rest and specialises in Box (Buxus) and Yew (Taxus baccata). The quality of the plants on their stand stood head and shoulders above many other growers. Clean, healthy plants in a range of sizes and shapes and a great price tag to boot!

We are pleased to announce we can now source containerised, root balled and bare root hedging and shaped topiary. We have a limited range in stock here at the nursery, but please let us know of your requirements and we can give you a very competitive quote.

The Taxus balls and pyramids are of particular interest to those that are worried about the problems of Buxus blight and are only marginally dearer than the Box.
