Spring is here!21.03.2017
True spring has begun, what do you reckon? A bit hesitating? Well, in my view it is only good not to rush too much. I am so glad that we do not have to face huge temperature extremes as in some previous years, and the plants and flowers have time and peace to stick their noses out in order to learn whether the air smells good enough to stick out the whole head. This crocus clump knows for sure the air is just perfect for showing off.

Blue is a popular colour so no wonder we have several blue flowering perennials. Lithodora is the top sought-after species and there are two varieties available now - 'HEAVENLY BLUE' is cushion-like.

That's right. Sun is out, asking us to go out as well. Last week on Thursday strong wind blew in exceptionally warm weather with temperatures of 17°C at noon and 14°C in the evening. Suddenly all witch hazels are out and blooming. Come closer to smell their perfume, isn't it lovely! Westerstede is a German variety with yellow flowers.

And among the bare branches, like green jewels shine evergreen shrubs and trees with lustrous foliage, such as this Aztec Pearl Mexican orange. It is incredibly hardy and fully resistant to sun scald.

Pictures from you - a little bit of summer in January24.01.2017
Low temperatures of the past couple of weeks make sure we know it is deep winter in Central Europe. Is there anyone among you who is NOT looking forward to spring, raise a hand please. One, two, three ... liars! All of you :-)

At this frozen period everyone think we do sod all. Truth is we would love to but there is a lot of work to do in order to prepare everything for the coming season, bringing you so many new plants and flowers.

So while we have to have our central heating high why don't we browse a few summer pictures. And cheer up these cold days before we start digging again :-) I chose some photos you sent us end of last year.

Luboš from Třebíč loves extraordinary and less common evergreen plants and rocky plants. His rockery is amazing and will be stunning in 3-4 years when all these plants almost cover the stones.

A hedge in time - pictures from you24.01.2017
In 2010 another customer came for a few plants to grow along his street fence. He wanted evergreen plants and such that won't take ages to grow substantial. We helped him choose them and arrange in the way they would look nice. He did the planting himself.

His job is great even more because he kept making photos every year in order to see the difference. So now you can see this 6-part series showing how well and beautiful his hedge has been growing.
