Visit to Staplehurst Nurseries April 2010


The Begonia House with Jean Talboys

The Geranium House


Begonias, Geraniums, chrysanthemums, etc etc.
Our specially arranged private visit to Staplehurst Nurseries taught us all about the propogation of plants whose life started in Africa as a small seed or cutting, via Holland, to Staplehurst for potting on and up.
Then, regulated hours of light (up to 18 per day) and dark ( as few as 6 hours a day) Finally the fabulous result, a colourful healthy mass of colour.
We couldn't resist the opportunity to buy, and there will be plenty of beautiful bedding and pot plants for you when you visit. (Clapper lane, Staplehurst.)
