Greetings


The gardening year proper is drawing to a close, though some of you might be planting bulbs, shrubs, trees and perennials, splitting and dividing congested clumps or taking hardwood cuttings. I'm so glad that the gardening year never really ends, but I am thankful for the change in pace - especially when it comes to the allotment. Phew. We should learn to love the jobs that are created from the seasonal changes, even raking up fallen leaves, as they are all part of the circle of life. My allotment down time has mostly been spent sowing herbaceous perennial seeds, and I plan to do more; the trays are outside where the process of cold stratification will take place over winter. This year I am determined to make use of the small piece of land at The Nazarene which we have named 'The Bud Nursery': once the seeds have germinated next spring, been pricked out, and potted up, they will be transported to Didsbury where they will continue to grow. This is the first stage, so watch this space!

Please read on for information about our annual Winter Warmer and Christmas trees.

Very best wishes,

Brenda.
 

Christmas Trees


We'll be selling Scottish Christmas trees from our usual tried and trusted supplier: premium quality Nordmann Firs, Fraser Firs, Lodgepole Pines and Korean Firs. The Nordmanns will be available in a range of heights from 3ft-8ft. All the trees have non-drop needles. If you're interested in a taller tree i.e 9ft+ please email me as soon as possible.

The trees will be on sale, fingers crossed, from Friday 1st December. I have ordered more this year, (agghh), so hopefully we won't run out before the middle of December as in previous years. We can deliver within a 3 mile radius of the garden centre for £5, but I'll love you forever if you're able to take your tree home with you.

The lovely specimen below is a 7ft Lodgepole Pine; I'm rather taken with the lights. If I remember correctly, the tree was bought and decorated by Amrick.

Winter Warmer Sunday 3rd December


Our annual Christmas party is almost upon us. Levy Uke Up and Levy Chorus will be singing and playing ukuleles at 5pm. Burnage Good Neighbours will be raffling a Christmas hamper to help fund their work with the elderly community in Burnage, and all money raised from the sale of our homemade mulled wine, Barbakan mince pies and hot drinks will be donated to Manchester homeless charity Mustard Tree.
 

Opening Times


The garden centre will be open EVERY DAY, 10am - 5pm from Wednesday 29th November until Wednesday 20th December, inclusive. We re-open on Saturday 3rd March 2018.
