The growing season this year started very early for us in Hampshire, with some exceptionally warm weather towards the end of April and beginning of May which was fantastic for Malvern and Chelsea flower show. But the plats started to go over much earlier than usual and it was a real struggle to select plants foe the flower shows later in the season especially Malvern Autumn! We have had a very busy year with all the shows winning best in show at Malvern spring! As well as gold at Chelsea, Hampton court, Tatton, Malvern autumn and platinum at BBC gardeners world. With such great achievements were hoping for the same or even better results at next years shows.
Our open weekend was a great success and we were able to meet old and new faces! We hope to add more open weekends next year so you will be able to see the plants growing during spring and early Summer
The greenhouse is being extended at the moment ready for next year to provide a larger growing area mainly for new sarracenia forms and hybrids, we are also hoping to extend the Nepenthes growing area , should be finished in a couple of weeks weather depending.
