It is early 2018. It is the time of those dark, murky days when we long for the sunlight and the flowers! However there is plenty to be getting on with. Here are some of the things we suggest!
We have the following varieties in stock;
Arran Pilot, Duke of York, Foremost, Homeguard, Swift, Winston, Estima, Kestrel, Nadine, Spunta, Charlotte, Int. Kidney, Nicola, Desiree, Kingsman, King Edward, Maris Piper, Mozart, Picasso and Rooster.
PICK and MIX POTATOES
You can buy 10 seed potatoes for £3. You can pick any mixture of quantities of any variety. That way you should be able to try out new varieties and also extend your growing season.
We also sell by the 2.5kg bag for those of you who have firm favourites!
PRIMROSES and PANSIES - Gift baskets and posies.
If you need a little colour in your life then we have our own grown flowering primroses in the polytunnel and some pretty violas and pansies. We always have gift baskets available or we are happy to make you up something of your choosing while you wait.
Marie is making small fresh posies in oasis each Saturday. They will be on the counter and again you can always order in advance.
BARE ROOT STOCK
We always order bare root trees and hedging in December. We hold the stock over the winter and we have plenty available now. There are ornamental trees, fruit trees, native hedging and evergreen hedging all in bare root form. Now is the time to plant while it is cold and they are dormant. We are all experienced in this so we will be able to give you guidance as to how to plant when you visit us. You can also read Ruth's Blog, here on our website, with 6 steps to plant a bare root tree and common mistakes people make.
Make your own Marmalade.
We cannot lie - It is not quite sunny enough to grow Seville Oranges on the farm . . . . . . but if you fancy a little sunshine in your life then Seville Oranges are now in stock for you to make your own Marmalade!
If cooking is not 'your thing' then we can highly recommend Hazel's Marmalade that we sell in the farm shop. Hazel is Paul's mum and our cupboard at home is not complete if it does not have a jar!
