If your garden's looking a bit soggy don't worry, your camassia will be loving all that moisture! Here's a look back to the autumn when I was very grateful to all the volunteers who helped me plant the National Collection of Camassia at the nursery. I can't wait to see them pop up in the spring! 🌸

Our gardens carried us through lockdown last time and there are still jobs to do in November. It's prime Camassia planting season. If you haven't got your bulbs yet, we still have some varieties available so you can create your own magical display of starry blooms this spring. Camassia are super hardy and love moist ground so if you've got a boggy patch in the garden they're perfect for brightening it up.
If you're planting your bulbs right now, here's a reminder of our feature in Country Life magazine and Stella's top tips: https://www.countrylife.co.uk/gardens/gardening-tips/everything-you-need-to-know-about-growing-camassias-215198
countrylife.co.uk Camassias are tall, elegant and simple to grow. It’s easy to see why people fall in love with these American beauties, says Val Bourne.
We still have a few of the incredibly rare Camassia leichtlinii 'Pink Star' bulbs available to order. These beautiful pale pink beauties were grown for and featured in Chris Beardshaw's RHS Chelsea Gold Medal and Best in Show garden. 🌸

Unlike most other hardy bulbous perennials, Camassia crave moisture so are ideally suited if your ground is on the damper side.
Now is the perfect time to plant! See which bulbs are still available to order here:
Have you seen this month's Gardener's World magazine - November issue? Having battled with floods here at the nursery we know exactly what Monty means about the ability of Camassia to bounce back. They love moist ground which is why we have just planted our National Collection in grass at one of the lowest points on the Nursery.
Don't miss our end of season plant sale on our wooden plant cart outside our nursery in Alne. It's the perfect time to plant and we have a lovely varied selection of hardy perennials 🌸
