APRIL 2021 NEWSLETTER

WOW, what a start to April... our team here at Middlecombe have been running round like busy buzzing bees!


Plant stocks in general are really scarce throughout the country. We've got good stock, but don't be too disappointed if we're missing specific varieties that you're looking for. We're working hard to keep all our plant and garden product stock topped up, and so far so good - only a few days without compost, which is now back in stock - Hooray!


With sunny weather now making a daily appearance, the nursery gardens are starting to leaf out, and re-shaping and re-planting has already begun in our main garden. With lots of plans for the year ahead (we like to keep ourselves busy!) it's worth a regular visit just to see the progress and development here at Middlecombe.

VEG PLANTS

We are receiving weekly deliveries of veg plants, and this year we're stocking a wider range of veg and varieties of, than previous years, including over 18 varieties of tomatoes!!! Available while stocks last, of course.


DISPLAY GARDENS

We'll continue to develop the display gardens this year, with plans to create more outdoor seating space, as well as displays in the main garden and a new 'Gardenalia showcase' garden. The gardens are by no means empty at the moment, with plants starting to leaf out in the warmer weather and the tulips and daffodils are in flower.


THORNDOWN PAINT

Thorndown is a specialist paint manufacturer that creates technically excellent, water-based wood paints inspired by the beautiful countryside and heritage of the West Country where the factory is based. The husband and wife team blend together passions for art, design, science and the natural world in these ecologically advanced paints.


We've chosen to stock a small collection of their wood paint, in our cute little paint shed. The colours we hold in stock are all used around the nursery, including Dormouse Grey which we use on our benches and nursery buildings. We can also order in any of the other colours in their range.


*Our paint shed is painted with Dulcote Stone and Foxwhelp Red.
