New Year and back in full swing

Wednesday, 2 January 2019 08:07:00 Europe/London

We have enjoyed our winter break and our now back in full swing on the nursery.  January is a busy time for us – we have lots of orders of hedging plants to send out all over the UK as winter is a good time to plant. Many people are deciding to replace their rotten fences with hedging plants that will withstand the winter storms once they are established and also last a lifetime.

We are also busy potting plants on.  We are potting larger plants dug from the field into large pots. We are also potting plants from smaller pots into larger pots so they have feed and space to grow on once the weather warms up.  Some of the plants that we potted last month have already started to root-out into the pots due to the mild winter.

We will have root-balled plants dug straight from the field available until the end of March/beginning of April depending on the weather as well as pot-grown Leylandii all year round.

January is also a good time to do maintenance work around the nursery so we will also be busy fencing and re-covering some of our polytunnels with new plastic sheeting. There’s lots to do.

January is a good month to plant hedging, it gives the hedging plants time to get some roots established before the soil dries out later in the spring. Someone said to me over the Christmas break that it was "too cold outside" and they would wait until it warms up a bit to plant but you soon get warm digging holes and when you come in after a few hours work planting a new hedge, you feel that you have accomplished something worthwhile, had some good exercise and breathed in some fresh air.  I find getting outside on these winter days and making most of the short hours of daylight makes me feel a lot better. Gardening is great for your physical and mentall health. 

We wish all our customers a Happy New Year!
