November in the Garden.....

As it becomes cooler and the leaves are falling, regularly rake lawns and paths. Protect tender plants from frost, gales and freezing rains. Move plants into a sheltered area or wrap in situ. Remember winter can be a tough time for birds in terms of water and food, so keep supplies well topped up. Plant up containers with winter bedding such as pansies, violas and polyanthus, adding evergreens and spring bulbs.

Plan for next year too, think about which seeds you will be planting, the new stock is due in very soon. 


Trees.....

Be it rural or urban, trees are an indispensable part of our landscape. They provide shade and shelter from the elements. Their wood gives us a useful and often beautiful material for industry and in our homes. However, it’s when we bring trees into our gardens and get up close and personal that their beauty becomes even more apparent. Flowers, foliage, bark and berries are key elements most of us look for when designing our gardens. Today there are such a range and diversity of trees that it possible to have all these elements in even the smallest of gardens. Sorbus (Mountain Ash), Malus (Crab Apple) and Amelanchier (Snowy Mespilus) are just three star performers for smaller the garden, each with more than one string to their bow and rewarding our efforts with interest from spring though to early winter. More information about our trees can be found on our Tree Availability page.

Fruit Trees.....

james grieveFruit trees grown in the garden yield rewards throughout the year. Their flowers are often one of the first signs that spring has well and truly arrived and the dark winter days are behind us. Many fruit trees, such as Apples, Pears and Cherries are more than a match for any ornamental flowering tree. Then of course there’s the fruit. Picking an apple fresh from the tree has to be one of autumn’s greatest pleasures. There is a staggeringly wide selection of fruit trees to grow in your garden, from the humble Apple or Pear to the more exotic looking Mulberry, Medlar and Quince. You don’t need to own a large orchard to grow fruit trees. Thanks to the dwarfing root stocks many fruit trees are grafted onto and the wide range of styles such as bush, fan-trained, step-over, cordon or espalier, even the smallest of gardens will be able to accommodate at least one. Our Autumn Fruit Tree List is now available.

If you still have doubts about growing fruit trees in your garden you can of course talk to us. Alternatively, we can recommend The Fruit Tree Expert by Dr D. G. Hessayon as an excellent, no nonsense bed-time read.
