When will it stop raining?!

When will it stop raining? Or – will it ever stop raining?? At the moment more than one gardener might be panicking, and asking themselves, and others, the latter. But, as the old saying goes, “Nature always pays her debt”, and so the rain now will translate to some gloriously sunny days before long, we’re sure of it. And when they come, you will want to be ahead of the game!

One way, of course, as far as we are concerned, is stocking up on some good quality, exciting new plants ready to go in, as soon as your borders have stopped resembling moats, and as soon as you feel safe to pack away the snorkelling equipment that you needed to get to the bottom of the garden all winter.

Here at Madrona Nursery, where we have a particularly spectacular form of thick squelchy clay, we have rarely been out of wellies since the autumn, but we still have hopes and aspirations for this coming season.  As the winter clean-up is now complete and the nursery stocked up with a number of lovely new and well-known shrubs, perennials, grasses and ferns, as well as some interesting trees, why not come by and see for yourselves? We are sure you will find something that you didn’t know you needed, but in fact hardly can live without! And if nothing appeals, just have a little sit down with a hot drink and perhaps some of the famous fruitcake…that can never be wrong, come shine…or even more rain! Surely not??

Our opening hours:
Mon-Sat: 10am – 5pm
Sun: 1pm – 5pm

Hope to see you soon,

Liam, Ylva & The Madrona Nursery Team
