Hello


The busy and hot summer had impeded my ability to type; can you believe it was early June when I last sent a newsletter? I'm certain that I would never win any prizes for marketing. Normal weather has resumed, everything is a lot less frantic, and et voila, a newsletter.

There's lots of activity at the garden centre during September, and new stock, some yet to arrive... yes, PLANTS. How much do we love plants?

I hope the rain has been good for you and your gardens, though I'm going to be very careful what I wish for in future.

Very best wishes,

Brenda.


New Stock


Our new batch of fruit trees has arrived at last, but due to the size of the garden centre, stock is limited, so if you fancy a dwarf apple, crab apple, plum, cherry or damson, you'd better come quick. The self-fertile kiwis look great, and do produce small, edible fruits, even in Manchester.

We have a plentiful supply of fruit bushes, except Blueberries, which will be on sale from about the 11th September. They will arrive with a new consignment of azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons, from a top-notch 'acid-lovers' nursery in Nottingham.

THE SPRING BULBS HAVE LANDED, and this year we're selling them all loose. Though there won't be a scrap of single use plastic in sight, it's worth remembering that there is an environmental cost to paper too (it's not quite as simple as just swapping plastic for card or paper) so if you're aiming to be 'dark green', why not bring your own bags? Or you could bring clean plant pots to use as caddies. Refuse, reuse and recycle when you can, but don't feel too guilty... I found this short blog post by Riverford Organics interesting. It's worth a read.
