Small nurseries online

Posted: 10/01/2014 at 23:38



I refer to this site a lot, which contains links to a number of small specialist nurseries.  I especially like the one at Roseland House for it's climbers....but there are many others here.... I find it a pleasure to explore... I hope you do too...



August bloomers

Posted: 01/01/2014 at 18:45 that date, Aster's are usually at their best... I would certainly try those ... many varieties available...

What is this ornamental tree please?

..I think you were right earlier with Swedish Whitebeam - Sorbus intermedia.

''S. intermedia was introduced to cultivation in 1789, and is now widely planted as an ornamental tree, especially in town streets and parks.''

..from Online Atlas of British and Irish street trees

Where NOT to order from online

..both RHS Wisley online and Telegraph Garden Shop use Crocus to supply their says on their terms and conditions...

...just catching up with photos on this thread...all very nice...I do like the landscape ones in particular.... is that Lake Windermere above there little-ann...? 

...if my house is still standing by end of tomorrow...I might post a couple more as I'd like some advice.... wind is terrible here.. I can see a Silver Birch tree looks precarious in the's huge..and ripe for destruction in something like this...houses nearby too...not mine...I can sense a '1987' brewing...

...I also have a wind tunnel and I shut the whole lot up... I don't know if it's the best thing to do but it's what I feel safer with...I'm afraid something will blow out otherwise..
