You will need to wear work clothes and bring a pair of sturdy gloves. Chicken wire is a malleable material and easy to use but will require moderate strength in your hands and fingers. You may feel a little tired working with wire for a whole day, we have allowed time for rest breaks and we support anyone who needs a little help.

Just a reminder that the nursery will close early this Saturday. We will have to close at 2.00pm on 18th May (for this week only)

We have our usual range of herbaceous perennials, cottage garden plants, bedding and container plants, herbs and also a range of veg plants including chilli peppers, sweet peppers, tomatoes, our heirloom curly kale mix, pac choi, chinese brocolli, rainbow chard……..

Our garden is also open for nursery customers to have a look round for inspiration. Come and see us – but before 2pm!

img_0965 I posted this recipe last year but I am sure that some of you will not have seen it. It is definitely worth a try!

All around us at the moment is the sweet aroma of the Robinia pseudoacacia (false acacia) flowers. Last summer our French neighbour recommended that we try making beignets – fritters – with them. Having tried elderflower fritters we were keen to have a go.

 

I made a simple light batter out of a 50/50 mix of cornflour and plimg_0966ain flour, beaten egg and a drop of sparkling white wine as there happened to be a bottle open! (You could use beer or sparkling water) you then dip the flowers into the batter by holding onto the main stem, let some of the excess drain off and then fry until golden in hot oil, this only takes a couple of minutes.

We served this as a savoury dish with tapas, they go nicely with a yogurt and tahini dip or a smokey chilli salsa but you can also drizzle with honey and eat as a desert with crème fresh. Yum!
