Autumn has Arrived.

The Welsh countryside is ablaze with burning fiery colours right now.  Autumn has well and truly arrived.  

Our team is busy indoors working on preparing our website so if you're too far away to visit us, you'll still be able to buy from us.    Unfortunately at this point in time we will only be able to deliver to mainland UK, but will be looking at supplying a wider area in the coming months, so we'll keep you up to date on that one.    

This week we have been busy getting ready for the cooler days that are arriving soon and the impending winter frosts.  Plants have been inspected and tidied up, foliage trimmed where needed, and the greenhouse tidied, cleaned and new staging put in ready to take the more delicate tender plants.  

Our plants have been treated with Nemasys Vine Weevil Killer before the soil temperature drops too low.  This is a completely natural organic treatment in the form of microscopic nematodes (Steinernema kraussei) that seek out and destroy those pesky little Vine Weevil grubs that are munching their way through the roots of your prized plants.  It'll be too late to treat them this way once the temperature drops below 5 degrees Celsius, so if you are thinking of treating your plants, best do it now.

Our Heucheras at the nursery continue to look good, adding beautiful colour to autumn borders.  Heucheras are perfect for those winter displays and do well in pots with other plants like winter pansy's, evergreen grasses, baby shrubs and bulbs.  Or why not plant a container of contrasting heucheras, or even just one variety to a pot.  You may need several plants the same if it is a large pot.

Thank you for reading our blog today.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.  And don't forget if you're living in the UK, British Summer Time ends this weekend, so don't forget to put the clocks back by one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night.  

Happy gardening

Welcome to our blog

We would like to welcome you to our blog.  Daisy Chain Plant Nursery Ltd is a brand new plant nursery in Aberystwyth, Wales.  We stock perennials, grasses, alpines, herbs, shrubs, climbers and small trees.  We specialise in Heucheras and Hostas  and will be continuing to add new varieties over the months to come.  If there is something you would like us to stock, then please get in touch and we will see what we can do.

Heucheras are looking particularly stunning right now.  They offer beautiful colour at this time of year, particularly when most other plants are dying back for the winter.
