Visit Us For Our September Open Days This Weekend

If you’ve somehow missed it, our open days are this coming weekend the 21st-23rd 10am-4pm all days.

We are raising money for Macmillan cancer with their biggest coffee morning, so proceeds from all three days will be going to Macmillan.

We have lots of lovely orange colours and limes at the moment for your gardens. Oranges go in full sun or partial shade, and limes go in part shade or full shade. So there’s plants for every bit of your garden no matter the sun or shade!

We’ve also got some hanging baskets for sale that we’ve put together especially for our open weekend. They are all ready to just take away and hang outside your home.

If anyone needs larger quanties for planting schemes we do have some, just ask or speak to us about your requirements.

We look forward to seeing you here!

Hanging basket plants

This question was asked by
Sylvia C

I am wanting to create a 16″ basket for Autumn/Winter with a little trailing if possible.

Can you please advise plants required. Colour is not important as I love them all.

i bought some from Richard at the Southport Flower show and they are looking great.

Hi Sylvia
Thanks for your question
I have attached link below for one of the best plants for hanging baskets
It would nice if you mixed it with other upright heucheras, that way it isn’t all hanging down with a flat top, if you see what I mean?
You didn’t say if it was sun or shade
So assuming it sun heuchera marmalade or gojiberry is good in a basket, with maybe a heuchera shimmering violet to give a colour contrast
If it’s shady choose limes to go with the Redstone falls as they grow very well in shade and would give the basket a bit of contrast.
Heucheras like lime marmalade, heucherella catching fire etc
To make the basket very full 4-5 plants but if your ok to let it grow a bit (it wont take long choose 3-4 plants
Hope this helps
Kind regards
Vicky

Wheelchair friendly or not??

This question was asked by
Christine M

Hi – would love to come to your open day this month but just wondering about facilities for a wheelchair user. I’m thinking about the ground surface and more importantly toilet facilities. If not suitable I still hope to come on my own. Thank you for your time. Christine XX

Hi Christine
Thank you for your enquiry
We sadly are fully not wheelchair friendly all over the nursery, but we do have people who come with wheel chairs and are very welcome.
The drive unfortunately is gravel but is old gravel so not as tricky as when it was first put down .
We do have nice concrete paths around some are small as its working nursery and not open to the public often.
But we have a lovely wide concrete path that runs the length of the nursery, and in the national collection.
The toilets are sadly up at least 1 step which ever way you go and it’s only one toilet, probably not big enough for a wheel chair but not sure.
The people that have used it in a wheelchair can usually walk a step or two with help.
There is room for more than one person to help manoeuvre the person in the wheel chair (probably not in the chair though)
Richard and I would be happy to help around the nursery if a bit of muscle is needed 🙂
I am sorry it’s not fully wheel chair friendly it’s an expense that we haven’t been able to afford yet but we hope to sort in the future funds permitting.
I hope this helps
Looking forward to seeing you and gooefully your friend on the open weekend
Kind regards Vicky
