Nursery now open every day.
Whatever the weather or day of the week, Caths Garden Plants is now open every day.
Just a reminder to all our customers that Caths Garden Plants is now open 7 days a week until the end of October.  We are open all Bank Holidays and Easter including Easter Sunday, when many larger establishments are closed.  Our opening times are 10-30am-5pm and we will be pleased to see you and offer help and advice.  However, if you are happy to stroll around the plants listening to the birds we will not crowd you.

Please remember that our plants are grown naturally without being forced into growth by heat and so at this time of year, especially with the cold weather we are still having, our plants will be smaller than those you will see in the garden centre or supermarket.  Our plants will transplant and grow away much more readily when planted in your garden as they do not have to accustom themselves to the colder outdoor temperatures.

Bob and Andrew have been tidying up the shrub beds and putting out new shrubs this week.  Kate has been cutting back the Hemerocallis and I have been tidying up the Heucheras and Tiarellas in the shade sales area.  Even with the low temperatures and frosty nights the plants are showing signs of new growth.  Our Barnhaven primroses are coming into flower and have now been put out in the sales area.

Although we have had extremely cold weather this year we have had very little rain in the north west.  Our soil is remarkedly dry compared to many other areas of the country and as the weather warms up we should be able to get out onto the soil and start planting.
