winter

Welcome to our first newsletter. We thought we should begin the season by remembering the harsh conditions that we all had to endure last winter. In our nursery the temperature remained between -8 and -12 degrees most days for a whole six weeks. There were just a few days of milder weather in between. The lowest temperature we recorded one morning was -16 degrees!

Winter PlantsAlthough we lost many of the more tender plants, the rhododendrons and azaleas came smiling through the snow.

After we have rooted our cuttings, the plants grow in unheated well-ventilated polytunnels or outdoors in an area surrounded by windbreaks (see pictures). If they survive our conditions they will certainly be hardy enough for the vast majority of gardens.

We hope that you are looking forward to the coming season as much as we are, and that you haven’t lost too many plants in the extreme weather.
