There is Hope!

Hello Gardening Friends!

Usually I start my first newsletter of the season with ‘Happy Spring Greetings’ or some such phrase. However, this year, Spring seems to be ‘on hold’ and as I sit here writing and looking out the window, it feels more like January or February than mid April! So I thought I would send you all some assurance that Spring is on its way. It may be crazy outside, but inside the greenhouses all is good. Everything is on track and doing well. Our staff have been working away every day since the end of February planting and caring for the crops. Plants are starting to fill out and flower. This weekend, I took some quick shots of the greenhouses which I thought I would share with you to give you some hope! Enjoy!

Here's hoping!


We are proud to announce that this is our 25th year in business and we are planning to celebrate in style on the 5th May. We hope you will mark your calendars and plan to attend. We have plenty on the go for our 25th year, including 25 Special Peony Varieties (more on that soon) and our 25th Birthday Hanging Basket Challenge (see below). Thank you, dear customers for helping us make it to this milestone mark. Without you, we would not be here, doing what we love!

This season we are growing 25 unusual and special Peony varieties for our 25th Birthday!

25th Birthday Hanging Basket Challenge

Vote for a chance to win!

To help celebrate our 25th Birthday this year I have issued a fun challenge to our employees. Here’s how it works:

At the beginning of March, our employees designed and planted a 14” hanging basket each, using no more than 6 plants. Baskets are now growing well and will be full and beautiful very soon. All are different plant combinations and colours and maybe tell you something about each designer’s tastes?

Starting at our Birthday event on Saturday 5 May, visitors to the farm will pay to vote for their favourite basket, with each vote being a chance to win the basket. There will be some free ballots given away at our birthday event. We will continue the voting until Sunday 27 May when the votes will be tallied and the winning design and each basket’s new owner will be announced. The winning basket designer will have bragging rights and also will choose a charity for the proceeds to be donated to. Our employees are really getting into the spirit of the contest and are pretty excited about the challenge. The 7 contestants are: Kieron, Dan, Kelly, Val, Cathy, Ben and Chris. Hope you will participate in voting!
