50% off camellias Trehane Nursery (starts March 26th)

Comment from Nicola

The Trehane Nursery annual camellia sale begins on 26th March and the nursery is expecting a bumper year as camellias enjoy renewed popularity across the UK.

“We’ve got some interesting varieties in the sale this year,” said Trehane’s Nursery Manager, Lorraine Keets. “Our 5 litre (60-90cm high) sale stock includes the sweetly scented Apple Blossom with its delicate single white flowers and the shiny, bright red Ruddigore. My personal sale favourite however is the fragrant pinky/white Scentuous. Its small peony flower is really pretty and it can easily be grown to form a wonderfully scented, and at these costs very reasonable priced, hedge.

“We also have plenty of 10 litre ( 90-120cm high) stock available, including two good upright varieties, the formal double pink, Desire and the blush white, Commander Mulroy.

“This will be the 16th sale I’ve been involved with at Trehanes,” said Lorraine. “And I’m predicting that it will be our busiest. Camellias are back in vogue and everyone is looking for a bargain.”

The Trehane Nursery sale starts at 10am on Saturday 26th March and runs until the end of April, stock permitting. The nursery is on Stapehill Road at Hampreston, near Wimborne, next door to Knoll Gardens.

Trehane Nursery opens seven days a week, Monday to Friday from 8.30am – 4.30pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10.00am – 4.00pm.

Ideas for planting along a new closeboard fence

Comment from Maggie

We have removed an old out-of-control laurel hedge and now have a blank canvas. I am a beginner gardener so would really appreciate some ideas. There is a mature damson tree left but apart from that it's empty. The border is south east facing, 23m long and about 1.5m deep. The soil is neutral/acid (since originally leaving this post when I said it was alkaline I have bought a soil testing rod and tested it more accurately). I would like to plant a varied mixture of trees/shrubs, most of which will make the birds happy (again!), and which will not require masses of time to maintain.

Connecting buyers and sellers

Comment from Nicola

Hi all - I get requests every so often from people looking to buy a plant which for some reason we do not currently have a supplier name for.

So I have set up this forum area for you to post requests into. Please let us know the botanical name of the plant you want, how many, and where you are. I will then circulate to the suppliers in our network for you.

All the best, Nicola
