  1. I've been catching up with your recent blog posts Rona. What an eventful May you are having! Many good wishes for your new business. You must be so excited! Have you got a name for the nursery yet? I look forward to hearing more about it as time unfolds. Like you I'm fed up of wearing too many layers for May and keeping fingers crossed that it warms up soon. I hope that your cold is on the wane - you will need all your energy come June :)

  2. It's turning into an eventful year again Anna! We are keeping the nursery's exisiting name, Quercus Garden Plants, as it has quite a following and reputation. I need to set up a new website but for now there is a facebook page. I suspect I will be blogging about our journey as nursery owners. Yesterday was warmer and sunny today is colder and wet, I really need this cold as you say, won't have time for it come June!
