In June !
After a very cold start for the year, what a surprise in May. Long sunny days have been welcomed by all, the plants are growing well and we have managed to keep up with the watering here at Swincar!
We still have some vegetable packs left, but supplies are dwindling if you still need to get planted out for the season. Andrew has his own vegetable patch where he grows a small sample of all our vegetable plants to test for performance and quality. His potatoes are just coming through nicely and the veg is all sown or planted, much to the interest of the local pigeons who were most disappointed when he covered the brassicas with netting!
At Swincar, we still grow our summer bedding to be ready to plant from the end of May so we have plenty of fresh young basket plants available as well as a good range of traditional bedding packs.
Geraniums are an excellent performer in the garden, either in flower beds, tubs or hanging baskets. We have our last batch of Geraniums available in a good range of colours, including the ever popular scarlet red geranium!!
Perennials are a popular addition to the garden, we stock a good range of popular varieties, including Lupins, Dianthus, Delphiniums, Lavender and both traditional blue Salvia and the lovely Salvia “Hot Lips”
