GARDENING BLOG: HUGE ON HERBS

Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer.  ~Geoffrey B. Charlesworth

We’re huge on herbs! For all the green fingered gurus out there who enjoy cooking or those that grow your own we have just had another huge herb delivery into the garden centre. We have a wide variety of herbs from the most common to the more unusual, weird and wonderfully named.

Come and see us and stroll around the garden centre choosing your favourite herbs whilst listening to classical music. There really is no better way to choose your herbs!

We have a wide range available but some of our gardeners top favourites are: Thyme in the following varieties- Green, Silver, Lemon, Golden, Orange Scented, Foxley, Russetings and Rainbow Falls Thyme.

Sage in Green, Variegated, Purple, and yes you said it- Sage Hot Lips. Rosemary- Prostrate, Officinale, Sissinghurst and Miss Jessops. The wonderful and reliable Lavender –my daily favourite to aid peaceful slumbers in  Vera, Stoechas, Munstead, Angustifolia Hidcote and Peter Pan lavender.

We have Chives and garlic chives, Fennel-Bronze and Green, Roman chamomile, French parsley, Giant Italian, Curly Leaf and Rock Hyssop, Sweet violet and Alpine strawberries.

GARDENING BLOG: CAMELIAS

“The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another.  The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month” ~Henry Van Dyke

Camelias- ohhh how I love thee. Can I count the ways….easy to grow and providing bursts and flashes of vibrant winter colour in this ever lasting Winter of discontent. Truly I feel like I am back in the wardrobe of my youth- the stuff of the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe legend- with the White Witch and a Winter that never went. Needless to say I preferred it in my youth. I digress. But back to Camelias-one of our most popular evergreen shrubs year in, year out prized for its year round glossy fecund  foliage, and large abundant blooms in a wide range of reds, pinks and whites that flower in late Winter until early Spring.

We have a wide range available here at the World’s End Nurseries  garden centre. From Camelia Japonica’s: Strawberry Parfait, Nucio’s Jewel, Silver Anniversary, Kramer’s Beauty, Kramer’s Supreme, Tristrem Carlyon, Sawada’s Dream, Roger Hall, to Congratulations Camelia.
