Spring Planting

It’s certainly looking very Spring-like now, and it’s time to think about getting bare root plants into the ground. Bare root Roses are best planted by the middle of March as they leaf early, and they are ready to get going! We have Rosa Rugosa Alba (white) and Rosa Rugosa Rubra (pink) in stock at the moment. These hardy hedging roses will provide great colour, and provide a good, impenetrable barrier in your garden.

You can plant most other bare root hedging plants until mid-April.  Bear in mind not to hold off too long before you order your hedging plants, as the more popular varieties sell out rather quickly!

Now is also the perfect time to get bare root trees into the ground. You’ll find a fantastic selection of bare root trees on our website – we have many types and varieties in-stock – flowering varieties, specimen varieties, and varieties that provide spectacular autumn colour. We also have a great range of bare root fruit trees – apples, pears, cherries, plums, nectarines, peaches and hazelnuts! It’s a good idea to get your new fruit trees planted soon, so you can enjoy those first blossoms appearing – knowing that there could be some sweet, tasty fruit later in the year! Remember to stake and tie your new trees with strong stakes and ties, they’ll really appreciate that helping hand to get established. Your young new trees will also benefit from a feed in those first months, so why not treat them to some top quality Irish organic poultry manure?

We are very much into the busiest period of our bare root season, and delivery times may take a bit longer than our usual 48 hours, so please bear with us. You also can collect your orders from the garden centre as soon as they are made up. Consider calling ahead to check we have what you are looking for in-stock – it can be put aside for you to pick up later in the day.

Don’t forget to think about summer flowering bulbs – we have a super selection of bulbs in-stock at the moment. If you start planting your bulbs into your borders and pots now, you will be in for a fabulous and colourful display this and every summer. Plan your border carefully, and you can expect a great show from May through until October!!
