Starke Ayres Garden Centre Visit

StarkeAyresPost 09

My favourite outing – going to buy plants at my best-loved nursery – Starke Ayres Garden Centre. If anyone has it, they do! A great selection of seeds and seedlings (where I always go to first!)

My first impression was that they support organic gardening, first [...]

My Visit to Seebauer Garden Centre in Munich, Germany

This was my favourite display - 'Heide'

I’ve just returned from a two-week trip to Munich in Germany which included a two-day stop in Paris on the way home.

It was another sweltering hot day, but we had aircon in the car (thank goodness!) and the drive was pleasant because we never have enough to talk about. I have been there before, but it was Christine’s first [...]

Ferndale Nurseries – a review

Incredible Edibles

I went to Ferndale Nurseries (yes again!) this afternoon and this time I remembered to take my camera (not the fancy, good one, just a little point and click – I didn’t want to look like a tourist). I always enjoy going to Ferndale – even when they are busy as they were today, the service is great and the selection is superb. I had no particular agenda today other than perhaps [...]
