As well as the run up to Christmas, we are very busy in the nursery at the moment. The Bare-rooted Roses which recently came into stock are selling fast. The Poinsettias we have been growing since July are all ready and going out into the shop. The Camellias and Hamamelis are in bud. Raspberry Canes and Asparagus plants are also in. We have some great gift ideas together too in readiness for Christmas - hand tools, kneelo kneeling pads, gardening books and amaryllis gift boxes. Don't forget the National Garden Gift Vouchers and Daleside Gift Vouchers, they are always a welcome alternative gift for friends and family. See below for Christmas Opening Times.
We've five different types of Christmas tree this year, including the beautiful silvery Fraser Fir. Our care and cultivation leaflet, gives you good advice on how to look after them too. Plus - in the New Year, we are offering to re-cycle your Christmas Tree:
(Your receipt from Daleside Nurseries Ltd will be required as proof of purchase when returning your Christmas tree for recycling. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a collection service)
If the bright red berries of holly and the evergreen foliage of ivy are the symbols of Christmas outdoors, then the poinsettia with its large brightly coloured bracts, (modified leaves) is surely the symbol of Christmas indoors. The poinsettia of today is a far cry from it’s forbears. Compact and rounded in habit with an amazingly varied range of colours, the past 25 years has seen a huge increase in the popularity of poinsettias. Often, mistakenly, regarded as difficult to look after, poinsettias provide several months of colour if a few simple rules are followed.
To keep your Home Grown Poinsettias looking healthy, use Fito Poinsettia and Christmas Cacti Drip Feeder. Just twist & feed. Automatically drip feeds a little every day. Prolongs flowering and keeps plants healthier for longer.
Cyclamen are perhaps the most popular of all winter flowering house plants. They have a long flowering period, easily blooming from September until March, come in a wide range of colours with beautifully contrasting leaves and a compact growing habit.
They are also remarkably easy to look after, refer to our care leaflet for advice.
