6th January 2021. In line with the current government lockdown rules, Burncoose Nurseries is closed to visitors. However at present we are able to offer click and collect to local customers. This will be weekdays only, not weekends.
Mail order is continuing as normal. However please allow extra time for the couriers to deliver, once despatched from us. Sorry to say that some depots are experiencing high volumes of traffic, also staff shortages.
Some herbaceous plants are best lifted, divided and replanted if they get over crowded. This applies particularly to Crocosmia and Schizostylis (Kaffir Lilies) which flower sparsely if over crowded. Lift clumps with a fork, divide and replant smaller clumps 9”-12” apart.
Although young growth is only just emerging now is the time to stake those plants which you know will blow over when in full growth or flower later in the season e.g. Alstroemeria, Anemone japonica, herbaceous Clematis, Monarda. Rather than using canes, light “twiggy” branches of birch, beech or the twiggy tops of bamboos which have been cut and left to defoliate. These can be cut 12”-18” longer than the height required and pushed into the ground through and around the plants to be supported. Featured plants can also be supported with our range of plant supports.
