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 border on mass within a naturalistic scheme, or maybe a few under the base of a tree. They also work well in containers and even hanging baskets.

We discussed the subject in depth and looked through the grasses on display, followed by a question and answer session. If this all sounds like hard work, we all retired to the Summer house and enjoyed a fantastic spread of home-made cakes and tea! See you next year!

We hope for the return of our PUBLIC OPEN WEEKENDS in 2021

We are a wholesale nursery, growing and supplying plants to the horticultural professions. However, we also hold a series of open weekends, just three times a year, where we are open to the general public. These events are usually in April, June and September. 

Unfortunately, due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, we were not able to hold these events in 2020 but hope they will return in some form for 2021. For instance, we held a pop-up at the nursery during September which proved very popular.

Normally, on our PUBLIC OPEN DAYS all are welcome to view and purchase plants and enjoy tea and cake in the garden.

We also host regular talks and group visits throughout the year, but again these have been put on hold for the meantime.
