It's that time of year when....
…. all the catalogues arrive. It’s better than being a kid in a sweet shop!
Avon Bulbs were the first off the mark so there will be a small parcel arriving from them in the spring and a few more things ticked off on the ‘wants’ list (does anyone else have one of these – plants I have seen and MUST have?) Yesteday, Beth Chatto’s little brochure arrived and the prices are very competitive – hmmm, I think I’ll have to break open the piggy bank for her. Today it was the turn of Burncoose Nursery in Cornwall to spread their wares before me. I’ve used this company many times as they have such a large selection of interesting and unusual plants. I cross referenced them against last year’s list from Trevena Cross (also in Cornwall) as both nurseries stock some of the same plants. But Trevena Cross specialise in things of borderline hardiness for me here in east Berkshire so there are things I need to order from them.
Then I notice there are about three things on this year’s shopping list that are not for sale in Cornwall; but hey, there’s a nursery in Hertfordshire that stocks them all! Another website to check and another order to place. I tihnk I’m in for another busy planting season this spring. :-)
