gift tokensIf you cannot decide what would be the best plant gift to give then why not send a gift card. We have HTA gift tokens, useable in many garden centres around the UK and our Burncoose Gift Vouchers which you can use online for any plant order (you don't even need to spend the whole token value in one go, what you don't spend will stay on your account for year)


October was the month of Camellia sasanqua and while many of these still have flowers to come other varieties now begin to shine. By choosing a selection there can be a Camellia in flower in the garden from October to May.

We have 19 great camellias on offer until Christmas, so gift wrapped or not they make great presents.

With cooler weather and falling leaves November is the ideal time to plant trees. Trees benefit the environment in so many ways. They provide shade, absorb CO2 and pollutants, reduce water run-off and soil erosion and generally make us feel better. In addition they provide a home and food for wildlife and mark the changing seasons.

Many of our native trees make beautiful specimen trees though some can of course grow too large for a small garden. Alternatively, they could be planted as a mixed hedge, while named selections might prove to be a more manageable choice if space is limited. If the flowers are single and accessible to pollinators they won't mind at all.

         
 
Including how to plant a tree, checking ties, restaking a fallen tree, spring shoots and deer protection!


Check all your stakes and ties on young trees planted in the last three or four years and loosen the ties if they are cutting into the trunk. If the tree has outgrown its support now is the time to replace the stake with one that is more substantial. 

For those perennials which need winter protection either lift and store in a frost-free greenhouse or apply a mulch to protect the crown.
