Blue skies and blossom

Hello! Sorry we haven't been able to update the blog recently. At this time of year we are so busy planting, sowing seeds and working on the nursery that the days are just whizzing by! But we have some beautiful shrubs, fruit trees, climbers, alpines and perennials in the nursery all bursting into flower and they were just screaming out to have their picture taken!

We now have a large selection of bedding plants available, in packs and individual pots. Perfect for summer baskets. And don't forget we have vegetable plug plants, tomato plants, fruit bushes, strawberry plants and seeds for all the grow your own fans. Plenty of well rotted manure, compost and topsoil available too.

We are now open Mondays and Tuesdays for the Spring season, 10am - 4pm, so do pop down and find the perfect plant for your garden.

Hope to see you in the farm shop and nursery soon.

Easter weekend

Yesterday was a beautiful warm and sunny day at the Market Garden. As opposed to the rest of the week when it was so windy we thought the tunnels would blow away!

The Easter weekend weather forecast is looking very promising and the farm shop and nursery will be open Saturday 9.30am - 4pm, Easter Sunday 10am - 4pm and Easter Monday 10am-4pm. So it's the perfect time to get in the garden, the allotment or even start a windowbox! We have lots of lovely herbs and vegetable packs all ready to be planted now. Currently we have chard, cauliflowers, several cabbages, calabrese, purple sprouting broccoli and lettuce packs. Lots more to come in the next few weeks! We also have our lovely strawberry plants for sale, one that fruits early summer, one midsummer and another that will take you right up till September. And don't forget we have a wide selection of fruit trees, including several dwarf varieties.

On the plant front, we have a great range of shrubs, ornamental trees, bedding plants and perennials. Including these spectacular dicentras (bleeding heart), hellebores and camellias as well as many more in the nursery. And of course, we have Humax compost, well rotted manure and top soil to help give your garden some extra nutrients should it need it.

Finally, lots of customers have been asking us for garden pots. We have now got a wide selection of these in the farm shop.

We look forward to seeing you in the nursery and farm shop over the Easter weekend. Thanks for reading!
