The main work on the nursery at the moment is potting our herbaceous perennials. We shall keep going whilst it is warm enough and shall have an even bigger selection than last year. Some of the newcomers are listed below and should be available in March/April next year. :
- Sherbet Lemon
- Red Lark – a new hybrid promised for the spring, and thanks to Ball Horticultural Company for this wonderful image.
West Country Lupins (from cuttings)
- Cashmere Cream
- Magic Lantern
Did you know? “The Latin name for lupin, Lupinus, is derived from lupus meaning wolf or destroyer. Because lupins will grow in poor soil, they have also attracted the misleading idea that they can destroy the fertility of the soil. This is not true; lupins make their own nitrogen enabling them to grow in poorer soils but not chalk. Ideally a well-drained, neutral to slightly acidic soil will ensure 100% success, but most soils will be fine”.
and many thanks to them for these stunning images.
