Friday the 5th of March
Welcome <<First Name>>,

My favourite season has arrived at last! Autumn is nature's natural time for planting and we still have at least 6 weeks of warm weather to allow new trees and shrubs to establish strong root systems. Trees, shrubs, citrus and even perennials can make a lot of growth in Autumn. This is all good news for me because my pile of 'plants-to-be-planted' is bulging sideways!

It's been another busy week with lots of new arrivals in the Garden Centre. I see the weather looks like it's not too hot and not too cold, perfect for gardening. It is a great time to be outside enjoying and adding to our gardens.


Happy gardening,
From The Lushingtons Team
