Here at Superior Plants we grow a large selection of different, shrubs, herbaceous perennials and general bedding plants, these are alongside the massive selection of trailing and basket plants that we use in our award winning displays. Come on down and see what we have......
First we had to use a small digger to clear a large overgrown Pyracanthus that was taking up a large section of the garden, we also pollarded the crab apple trees to give them definition and shape, cut the hedges. Once done we could rotorvate the garden and lay the turf ready for the opening of the pub to the public.
We were asked to prepare wire strands to grow Espalier Pear Trees along a garden wall. We supplied and planted the trees after putting wire lines through eyelets fixed to the wall. Once we had planted the trees, we planted Buxus hedging along the front of the bed and finished off with bark chips. Once established we will remove the frames and attach to the wires.
We are now well under way with regards to the manufacturing of the hanging baskets, troughs, mangers and planters ready for the summer season. We will end up with around 3,000 items giving anyone who visits the nursery plenty of options with regards to shape and colour for their flowering displays.
Two types of begonia waiting to be re-homed into either hanging baskets, mangers, window boxes or planted beds in position. These are special Whopper begonias that provide a fantastic show all summer long. these are just a small selection of the begonias we have in stock.
Superior Plants were asked to clear and replant a bed at The Red Lion Lacock for Wadworths.
It started with removing all of the existing trees and established bushes, we then had to dig the roots out and add some more multipurpose compost and fertilizer. Once the ground was completely dug over then we could start to replant the bed with buxus hedge, Lavenders and topiary.
Sally and Mark did most of the work with Tony supervising as he recovers from his Hernia operation.
We are cracking on with the manufacturing of the Winter displays ready to replace the summer schemes.
Another 800 Conifers arrive today and the process can keep going.....no rest until they are all made 750 items done so far only another 1200 or so to go.
