As another year draws to a close, we reflect on a great 2015! We here at How Green can’t believe how quickly 2015 has flown by!! It only seems like yesterday since we were penning these pages in a similar vain. What a year!! Our season started very early back in early February. After a wet early part of Winter, the weather started to behave and our landscape customers could work on projects without getting swamped! A cold easterly wind
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

A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Prosperous New Year from us all at How Green! It doesn’t seem like five minutes ago, we were penning these pages for Christmas and looking back at 2013 – how time flies!

Last weekend we opened our gates to the public for our Autumn extravaganza! We only host these special days three times a year and our September event is a perfect showcase for late season colour!

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.

Thank you, from the team at How Green.
