Plant of the Month
Fuji Cherry and Sedum
A shaft of early morning sun lights up the last of the Autumn colour as the Mount Fuji Cherry changes from dark red to bright gold matching the foliage on Sedum Autumn Joy. Sadly strong winds arrived soon after.
The bright metallic purple berries of Callicarpa Profusion look stunning, ripe and ready for my garden robin to enjoy.
I'm totally over-excited with the solitary berry on my mistletoe. I squashed the berries onto the apple tree branches in January 2014 and two small leaves appeared six months later. They disappeared, then came back after another six months or so. It's been a long wait.
My garden has been such a help in the lockdown and I've had the perfect companion. My garden robin is always on hand, he's so tame and very vocal, a real chatterbox!

I'm delighted to say we are open again after the "Firebreak" lockdown which ended on 9th November. It was very frustrating but we are trying to pick up our trade again. A huge "Thankyou" to our lovely loyal customers who are returning to support us.
I've brought in some new British Wildlife triptychs framed in my exclusive hand-finished grey chalk-paint frames. This format works well for flowers too and you are welcome to choose your own favourites.
I had already brought Christmas cards into the shop including these new designs before we were forced to close again. It was disappointing after we had worked hard to create a safe environment for our customers but we're back now and I've been busy topping them up. I think cards will be even more important this Christmas
