We love dandelions.
Important early nectar for bees.
Edible leaves rich in vitamin C and minerals. Pick young leaves only all year round.
The flowers make dandelion honey too.
Roots make coffee but caffeine free.
What we find really fascinating are the common names as each county used to have its own name for flowers. So dandelions are also known as.
Bum-pipe, Burning Fire, Clock Flower, clocks and watches, combs and hairpins, conquer more, devils milk plant, devils milk pail, dog-posy, fairy clocks,farmers clocks, golden suns, horse gowan, Irish daisy, lions teeth, mess-a-bed, pissimire, stink ravine,swines snout, tell-time, time flower, time-teller, wet-weed, wishes ...

All the names hint at its uses too!!

In Scotland ‘pee the bed’

Also pis- en - lit in French - wet the bed.

The name dandelion come from the French, dents de lionne, teeth of a lion, description of the leaves. X

While we have not had to operate a queuing system this week, we have had several little groups of visitors every day. It is so lovely to welcome you all back to our nursery & gardens. Its also great that so many of you are first time visitors who we know will be popping back in soon. We are chuffed to bits and it gives us real hope for our future.
Do enjoy your weekends, love D & H

We spent today putting everything on trays and giving our first feed and water of the year. It’s one of those jobs you NEVER want to start as it’s endless! But, it’s done now and this will bring things on nicely.

We just adore these Solomon's Seal Hybridum. The disappear over Winter and we wait with bated breath for them to pop up late Spring. Such delicate arches and tiny white flowers. they remind us of magical kingdoms and fairies and woodland glades!

We promise you these look better in real life, the fresh green buds are just wonderful! White flowers later! Do excuse the huge nettle in the background (we are a wildlife garden after all lol).

We have been desperate to find an affordable (we use a lot) peat free, sustainable, local compost that we can use for sowing, pricking out, potting on, for shrubs, roses, climbers and that we can supply to all of you!
We hope that in this we have found it.
We will replace our Bulrush and our Slyvamix with this.
Please just bear with us while we trial it and hopefully we will be stocking it soon!

As we all frantically deal with our lockdown hair and the joy of non-essential shopping (although that’s not plants so not that exciting) please remember it’s still too early to plant out your annuals as we are forecast more snow still!

Future View Landscapes from Deal just came to collect their 55 x 5 litre (blimey) Verbena Bonariensis today.
We are desperate for the space and I have had to stop lots of walk in customers trying to buy them lol!
These will make some Deal bees very happy!

Wow! When did you plant those? I've tried 2 packets of verbena seed this year and neither have germinated.

Well these are cute as they are just about to bud, I am sorry we have none in stock right now, I need this one to grow a bit so I can make some babies!

Who is up for a Tree-sure Hunt?!
Join the 'Check a Sweet Chestnut Survey' from today on Treezilla & TreeAlert Apps to help UK plant authorities log locations, trunk thickness and signs of oriental chestnut wasp leaf galls on trees in public areas and private gardens. Currently not much is know about the UK's sweet chestnuts so get out there and get Tree hunting!
(Don't forget to note where they are so you can go back in the Autumn to collect the chestnuts!)
