News from Growild Nursery
« on: March 07, 2015, 11:54:11 AM »
Spring seems as if it’s just around the corner and we wanted to let you all know that more botanical treasures have now been added to our plants store on the Growild Nursery website at www.growildnursery.co.uk. Most are extremely limited in number and some, like Arisaema and Paeonia japonica, will be available for a short time only, so order early to avoid disappointment!

Please remember that last orders for plants will be the 30th of April. We prefer sending out plants in their dormant period when they will be less stressed in transit. This cut-off point also gives Lisa a period of time to concentrate wholly on propagating stock for the next autumn plant sale when we will offer you more new exciting seeds and plants. This plant sale should begin in early November. Seed sales continue all year round.

All our best wishes for the gardening year ahead!
Lisa & Andrew

Dear forum members

I wanted to let you all know about a new exciting plant we have just added to our store on the Growild Nursery website.

Potentilla atrosanguinea ‘Chadwell’s Tibetan Velvet’

An absolutely beautiful, clump forming, herbaceous perennial plant with slightly nodding, rich blood red, velvety flowers with black centres and three-lobed, silky-haired, strawberry-like leaves.

50% of sales of this seed will go directly to Chris Chadwell's plant conservation and botanical projects along with charities he supports in Nepal.


We grew this plant originally from seed collected by Chris Chadwell and described as Potentilla ex Tibet with affinities to Potentilla atrosanguinea. With a view to getting this plant into wider cultivation, we got in touch with Chris after finding that the collection number had been long lost and that results gleaned from searches on the internet proved to be muddled and confused. Chris suspects the plant is likely to have come from his 2005 expedition of the NW Himalaya and borderlands of Western Tibet as one collection is described as having blood red flowers. We asked Chris if he thought this form might warrant a name so that, in the future, the plant could be referenced back to one of his collections and, therefore, its history wouldn’t become more confused. He agreed to have the plant named Potentilla atrosanguinea 'Chadwell's Tibetan Velvet'.

For those unfamiliar with Chris’ work, please visit his website www.chadwellseeds.co.uk and consider supporting him yourself. He does not receive any funding for either his research or conservation projects. Without his dedication and knowledge we would not have such plants in cultivation.

Very best wishes
Lisa

Lots happening at Growild - Lisa tells of  the latest project.....

"My next big project for this year at the farm nursery has just begun. This area has been left in it's present condition for over 20 years and is a carpet of the worst kind of weeds, which have to be meticulously dug out, as well as general detritus, rubble and river cobbles (which I'll re-use later for paths). Part of this area has the farms old midden, which is sunk into the ground and has a beautiful old stone square wall. Can't wait to start planting, so many ideas ... so much back-breaking work ahead! Have a nice weekend, Lisa."

Photos.....
Area Lisa  started digging out today
River cobbles dug out today - later to be used for paths.
Towards the back of the photo, sunken into the ground is the old farm midden.
Beautiful old stone wall of the farm midden - plenty of planting opportunities (Lisa is  thinking Begonia's)
Corner of the old farm midden - it's much deeper than this and L. may have to hire in a small digger!

Last date for ordering from Growild Plant Catalogue for the season is 1st May ( see sales remain open).
Lisa and Andrew say:
Quite a few plants have now sold out but we still have a good selection to choose from including those shown in the photo, plus some brand new additions this week.
Although plant sales are nearly coming to an end, our Seed Shop stays open all year round and we will be adding lots more new and rarely encountered species to our range this year as soon as they are ripe. We are currently very busy propagating stock for our next autumn plant catalogue.
Happy growing and we hope to be able to tempt you back soon.
Lisa & Andrew
