After the warm(ish) Christmas period, the weather has been cold and snowy here this past week with more forecast. As we had a few centimetres of snow on the ground before the cold nights (-11C twice this week), the ground underneath has remained reasonably soft. so we are still able to lift bare-root trees, if a little slower than we would like. If you are unsure of how to look after new bare-root and rootballed trees during this cold weather, feel free to call us, we’ll be glad to advise.
The weather has also slowed progress on our greenhouse restoration. However, all the new timbers are in place and new glazing has started to be installed. Deadline is the end of February, so we can get lots of fresh plants in for the Spring.
This year we also celebrate our centenary, and are currently planning a series of events to mark this milestone. We’ll be sure to update you as soon as these are confirmed – we’d love all our customers old and new to be able to join us in celebrating 100 years of growing.
