Great News from Neil and  Sue Huntley at Hartside :

Terrific news which we  are    delighted  to hear  - much love to you all. Seems  Lucas  & Sebastian are  suitably  impressed with their  little sister!  Well done , Caroline!!

I simply can't get over how Neil and Sue's oldest grandson is the spitting image of his Dad at that age. I remember him at Shows with Neil when he was about 9 or 10.

Nursery news this time  from Hartside ..... www.plantswithaltitude.co.uk
 " It was -10C this morning, a lovely cold clear day today - lots of plants showing potential and eager for new homes in the frames even though they are frozen solid at present! A "New" pdf of the catalogue is now on the web site, and "New" things have been added to the web shop."

They look like beautiful, well grown plants.  It is somewhat frustrating to see so many nurseries I would like to patronize; and to know that they will NOT SELL TO ME!

Fifty years since Neil and Sue bought the land to start the  Hartside nursery - quite a record these days!
And right now they're at RHS Tatton Park Flower Show, as  "RHS Master Growers"  - here are a few photos of their stand:

Maggi,
I am indeed aware of that page; and the corresponding page by the Ontario chapter of Nargs & HPS.
There are still many nurseries in England & Scotland that I wish I could buy from.
It would be great if the UK Dept of Agriculture [ or its equivalent] could be persuaded to reduce the cost of phytosanitary certificates for small orders.
