We have crammed our shop full of bulbs. We have all sorts of daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, crocus, alliums and snowdrops. Plant them now for a wonderful show of colour and cheer in the spring.
If you drive along the Main Road at Kesgrave you will also have seen that our pumpkins are growing in the field. We will be harvesting them in October so come in to choose your perfect pumpkin. Every one is different. This year we have loads of gourds that are great fun for decorations too. They are all sizes and colours. We even have a white one called 'ghost'.
Autumn really is the best time for planting in your garden. It gives plants time to settle in so that they establish well and give good growth in the spring. We recommend putting in shrubs and trees now to give structure.
Please come in in September and early October to order your bare root trees and hedging.
If you ever worried about cutting down a Christmas tree then maybe a picture of what our field looks like in late summer will help lay your concerns about the environment to rest. We let the grass and wildflowers grow. This provides a wonderful cover and source of food for birds, insects and mammals. Once all the birds have fledged Paul will trim the grass and he will be pruning every tree in the field by hand. If you don't see much of him this autumn - now you know where he will be!
We are proud to sponsor Craig Thurlow who races Stock Cars. Paul and our daughter love to follow him at Spedeworth, especially at Foxhall Stadium. This August bank holiday there was a caravan demolition derby . . . . . and Craig won! Well done Craig and we hope he liked this caravan, that our daughter and her friends spent hours decorating, for him to race.
