It's been a long, hot summer but the temperatures haven't been the only highs. We've had a busy time on the nursery, making some changes, filming videos, and we've also had success at shows with our trade stands (including awards won at both the Great Yorkshire Show and the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show), but as we move into autumn the real work begins!
As well as the plants which have been available throughout the summer, at this time of year our new crops of shrubs, trees, hedging and screening (including pleached trees), which have been growing-on all year, become available - these will be added to the availability on the website as soon as possible, especially once our annual stocktake has been completed. In addition to this, we are also taking orders for field-grown stock which will be dug from our fields once dormant from November, such as Holly, large Pine trees, and Instant Hedging - which of course includes our famous Wykeham Instant Laurel Hedge Blocks.
