The sun has been shining on Elmlea this week and there has certainly been plenty happening. Giles is busy in the greenhouse potting, dividing and looking after thousands of exciting seedlings. We are also getting organised for this year’s show season. This year we will be travelling to Antrim again for Garden Show Ireland at Antrim Castle Gardens on 5th 6th and 7th May. On Sunday 14th May we will be in Cumbria at Hutton in the Forest for their Plant & Food Fair. On Sunday 28th May there will be a Chelsea Fringe event at Threave Gardens in Castle Douglas. All sorts of horticultural workshops etc will be taking place (more details to follow) but there will be a plant fair on the Sunday.On 2nd 3rd and 4th June we will be at Gardening Scotland at Ingliston which promises to be a great event this year. Later in the year we will be at Dundee Food & Flower Festival on 1st 2nd and 3rd of September. Other show dates to follow. Giles will also be at Wigtown Market every Saturday from Easter and at Kirkcudbright Producers Market on the 4th Sunday of every mont.
Although we are still sending out mail orders, the information on the website is not reliably up to date at the moment. My fault! I will be working on this over the next few weeks and hopefully adding many more images to help you make your selection. Meantime, we are always available to answer any questions. Just give us a call if you have any special requests. Not everything is on the website! We are always on the lookout for new plants and have some exciting new additions this year.
We are looking forward to seeing you all either here or at one of the above events this season. The nursery will be fully open at the end of March but please feel free to drop in before then. We are open from 10.00- 5.00 from Thursday to Monday.
