Anyone going?

I went, and now have an embarrassment of new plants, all very good prices, but rather a lot of "ooo I wanted one of those"

Surprised Laughing

Did you see Crug Farm Plants?
They're based a stone's throw from here.

Made me wish I'd visited last time I was in the area... Sad

Do go next time you're here, it's really worth a visit - and you're highly likely to meet Sue (loud and vivacious) or Bleddyn (a true plants=person, speaks in Latin most of the time!) because they're very hands on at the nursery ... unless they're off plant hunting, which tends to be mid Autumn.

They used to only sell to people who came to the nursery ... even Prince Charles used to have to send a man Smile. It took us years (vegplot and co. does the website) to persuade Bleddyn he had to go mailorder and it was a bit of a turning point for them.

Were they definitely at Cottesbrook? I am peering at the banner on their website and though their faces seem familiar, I don't feel like I've seen them recently? And by the sounds of their nursery, I'd have been poking around their stall Cool earthyvirgo

Yup, I'm pretty sure they were Tweeting about going.
