Daphne stock plants fresh from their spring make-over

Daphne stock plants fresh from their spring make-over

Excitement is building as one of the biggest events on the Feather Flower Brush calendar for 2015 is fast approaching. The wonderful Cottage Garden Club is coming to Abergeldie for a ‘ramble’ on Saturday 19th September. It’s a members only event with possibly as many as 150 Club members visiting the farm and daphne nursery during the day.

With only 10 days to go I’m frantically trying to climb on top of the hundreds of jobs I’d like to have done so the farm, gardens and nursery are looking their very best on the day. Thankfully I have the most wonderfully generous support of several dear friends who are swinging into action to help make it possible.

Special thanks go to Peter Ord and Leah Zegarac of Leah’s Chook Shed for rolling up their sleeves and throwing themselves into the farm and nursery spruce up. You are both legends!!!

No, this isn't a grass nursery. There are actually daphne plants under all those weeds.

One of the biggest challenges is restoring the much-neglected daphne nursery. I’ve weeded and fertilised all the super-sized stock plants but there are still hundreds of overgrown 20cm pots desperately needing repotting.

Can we do it? Yes we can!!!
