2016 Easter Weekend

2016 Easter Weekend

Hello everyone and welcome to the 2016 season at Blackfordby Nursery. We’ve been extremely busy behind the scenes during Autumn/Winter to make your trip to our little oasis of calm that bit more enjoyable.

55 days and counting

55 days and counting

It’s 55 days until the start of Wimbledon fortnight, and for us gardeners that means making sure we have two of the ingredients of any British summer firmly in hand – strawberries and mint. Because you can’t watch tennis without strawberries, and you can’t drink Pimms without mint!

It’s been a while

Somehow, Easter 2015 is almost upon us. We’ve been sweeping, weeding, tidying and generally sprucing the place up because we’re opening for the year on Good Friday, 3rd April.

You can tell it’s a Bank Holiday Weekend because it’s raining. But we don’t care – this weekend we’re all about herbs. With summer just around the corner (we hope!) now is the perfect time to plant a herb garden. We have 20 different herbs to choose from, including Tarragon, Parsley, Rosemary, Coriander, various types of Mint, assorted Sage, Fennel, Bay, Sorrel, Chives, Marjoram, assorted Thyme, Lavender, Oregano and Basil. We also have Artichokes and Nasturtiums. Sizes start at 9cm pots for £1.75 (buy 10 for £15 to set up a small herb planter), and we have larger Sage, Thyme, Parsley, Rosemary, Bay and Lavender plants too. We also have the usual wide range of garden perennials in stock. This weekend we’re also open on Monday, 10-4. Hope to see you there!...
