Abriachan Nurseries Plant Catalogue 2018

By Lochnessgarden @lochnessgarden
Anyone who knows our garden knows that we have a love affair with the Southern hemisphere and this year we broke new ground in Tasmania, actually, Bruny island off the south coast of Tasmania…next stop Antarctica. The birds were amazing, made all the more so by our daughter Cat, who is a wildlife guide there. Wallabies and Echidna; Wombats and fantastic beaches, where anyone else on it made it feel crowded. And oh, yes the plants. They were wonderful too and I have a huge love of Eucalyptus forest and the great cushion and carpet plants on their high peaks. Donald has brought his enthusiasm home and we will be planting some Tasmanian plants this year. And now can winter stop please. It has been long alternating freeze and thaw, and for the first time for some years enough snow to break branches and that has caused a surprising amount of damage. It is mid-February now and the met office is now promising a Siberian easterly and another cold spell. Bring on spring. Make this the year you come and visit us…the garden is already looking good, glistening hollies, witch hazels, snowdrops, winter aconites and the wonderful Daphne bholua.The 2018 Plant Catalogue is now ready to be thumbed over, pencilled upon and the corners folded while you go about choosing this years selection for your garden.  So put the kettle on, open the chocolate digestives and peruse at your leisure, picking out a great selection to enhance and enlarge your gardens.  If you are on our hard copy mailing list it will be popping through your door any second, but you can get a head start on some of the special plants in limited numbers by  through our website ordering or downloading the pdf of the catalog.
As the weather is now suitable, we are beginning to send plants in the mail.  We will send out the mailorder in the same order we received the online and posted order forms and will let you know if plants sell out so you can be put on a wait list or choose another alternative.
