Autumn is a wonderful time for Hedges

It’s wonderful autumn weather for seeing the changing colours of leaves and fruits. My walks with Charlie have been thoroughly enjoyable recently and I thought you might like to see these photos of colourful fruits.

Do you like my posh wellies?  I bought them at the Malvern Flower Show last year and they’ve been well worth the rather expensive price tag – they’ve got a bit of stretch in them so ideal for getting on and off.

Sometimes very hard winters make for more fruit (it applies to domestic fruit trees too – and there’s certainly been a very productive harvest from our damson and apple trees) and with the terrible winter we had in 2009/10, we’re now experiencing one of the main benefits.

We sell these 3 fantastic species as bare root plants and we have Dog Rose and Rosa Rugosa as cell grown too – and Dog Rose in pots.”
