Just received the wonderful sculptures on loan from the James Roberts Workshop. Here we are testing the water feature in preparation for the RHS Malvern Autumn Show next week!
Finally getting the new enclosure finished. Got 24 Willows planted, 5 membraned lines down, 1 of the 2 cultivated rows done and lots of shade netting. Now just filling everything up with loads of Hostas plus other plants.
Well there we have it, we have finished the Taunton Flower Show 2023. Was very busy, spoke to loads of lovely people and enjoyed the faces and watching the youngsters enjoying the display.
Only 11 days to go until the Taunton Flower Show. We will be in the Floral Marquee this year and will be producing a 3m x 3m display with lots of Hostas, a rather special water feature and a few more things for you to see. Here is a photo of some of the items.
Finally got a new shovel to help with putting the Hostas in the ground at Clayhanger.
Just had it confirmed that we will be attending the RHS Malvern Autumn Show in September, so we will be in the Floral Marquee with a 3m x 3m display, so look forward to seeing you there!
Thought it was about time to do an update as it has been busy since Devon County Show. Since then we have done the Royal Bath and West, Hellens Garden Festival and Abbotsbury Rare plant fair. We have also had some wonderful visits to our Milverton site out in the woods. We are currently preparing plants and materials ready for the Taunton Flower Show at the beginning of August, hopefully meet many more of you there.
Well here we are at the Devon County Show, which begins tomorrow. Some photos of testing and setup. We are taking a small 1m x 0.8m display with us to show off some of the plants. I will be giving a talk each day of the county show in the Garden and Crafts Pavilion, so the more the merrier.
We will be at Toby’s Garden Festival at Powderham Castle on the 28th and 29th April.
We will be presenting by the Lake on Friday morning “How to Grow Hostas”. Come and join us and I’ll answer any questions you may have.
Been working hard at our Devon site getting cutting paths and getting an area prepared ready for planting some of our Hostas in the ground.
