Great Grasses at our Autumnal Nursery talk

Last week we welcomed back the Fordcombe Amateur Gardening Society to the nursery. The end of October can be a little tricky for seasonal interest, but with our grasses at their peak we made the most of them! Grasses can be so versatile and can be used in many aspects and situations. There are grasses for full sun and arid conditions, there are grasses for shade, for moist conditions (and marginal) and there are perennial and annual grasses. Plant them in the

Falling for Fall in Canada and North America

It’s been a little quiet on these pages for a few weeks, as we’ve been off on our holidays! With a passion for horticulture running through our veins, the lure of the Autumn spectacular abroad was too much! Two weeks in September/October were spent ‘leaf peeping’ in New England in America and the Quebec and Ontario regions in Canada. In an amazing stroke of luck, the colour was seen at it’s peak and in certain parts of Canada, it was

Charlotte Molesworth in her topiary garden

A Visit to Balmoral!

What a garden, what a woman! Tonight, How Green Nursery will be presenting a talk to the North Tonbridge Horticultural Society on the subject of topiary. Whilst researching the fascinating art, a chance discovery was made. Not too far from the nursery in the village of Bennenden lays the Balmoral topiary garden, created and cared for by Charlotte Molesworth and her husband Donald. The garden is not open to the public, so a very polite phone call and a battering

It Never Ends!

Potting up already underway for 2013 season. No sooner has one selling season finished, preperations are in full swing to boost next years stock levels! Our staff are working flat out and our potting machine a blur, as tens of thousands of perennials are potted into 1 and 2 litre pots. Most of these plants started life as rooted cuttings back in June and have subsequently been reared in a ‘liner’ pot. With most of these liners rooted through, we can now

Wonderful Hampton Court!

Annual visit doesn’t disappoint. Last week the glorious Hampton Court Palace opened it’s doors for the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show. As ever, the largest flower show in the world was spectacular! Plant enthusiasts were met with dazzling show-gardens and dozens of plant stands, enticing us all with their stock. This year, How Green Nursery supplied no less than four show gardens with varying numbers of plants. Growing for flower shows, for a specific date can be a nightmare for

Shining a Light on Alpines

The hills are alive with the sound of…….. alpines? This week, the nursery has taken on a patchwork of colour within our alpine beds. The trigger of longer day-length and warmer temperatures are the catalyst for a dramatic display! Alpines are found across the globe, including Britain, and can be found growing from the foothills to the peaks of the highest mountains. Their worth in the garden is immense. They can be planted in rockeries, walls, border edges and patio pots, proving their versatility. Scroll

Hellebores bring cheer to the new year

January is now upon us and even with all this inclement weather around, another season has begun at How Green. It’s not just our potted bulbs that are ready, there are plenty of other reminders that Spring is round the corner. Primulas in full flower, Erysimum in bud and our Hellebores are coming out of hibernation. Having said all this, we have now put a curse on the weather and we’ll get an arctic blast like last year. Our rain dances at the

We could be on the telly!

The episode we were filmed for features the importance of green spaces in London, and we contribute to those green spaces by supplying seasonal bedding plants for Westminster City Council! So look out for us on Channel 5 on Tuesday 6th December at
