Re-Opening of Improved Road Crossing
On Saturday 28th October we will also be celebrating the opening of the new improved crossing beside Cambridge Road. Many people use the crossing including some on mobility scooters, bikes, wheelchairs and people with young children in buggies. We are so happy that people in the community will be able to cross to the bus stop more safely and also visit our nursery!
Thank you to local residents, Councillors and Kesgrave Transport and Pedestrian Working Party, Suffolk County Council and Kesgrave Town Council who made this a reality.
We feel it is good to celebrate by having a community event and hopefully raise some money to a really worthy cause and give a little back. This is what inspired the 'Pumpkin Party'.
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'.
Wall flowers are now in! David is lifting them daily from the field. They are £5.95 per dozen. The plants are big and fresh. They are the bedding variety (about 25cm high when fully grown) and they come in mixed colours. Plant them now for them to flower in the spring.
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.
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.
