August news from the Nursery

After the prolonged dry spell we are now having some much needed rain. The lawns are very dried up and yellow, but they seem to bounce back quickly once the rain soaks in. Many garden plants from warmer parts of the world have done very well, like the Salvia family. We have more plants going onto the website that have just become available. The grasses are starting to flower,the short pennisetum Little Bunny and the taller Hameln are looking good. A shrub that is good for flower and later for autumn colour is Ceratostigma griffithii,the blue flowers will be out soon. We also have a new crop of Griselinia littoralis ready in 2litre pots as well as the 9cm plants.
