After Crug Farm’s triumph at Chelsea, another of our plant suppliers, Cath’s Garden Plants, has won a Gold and “Best in Show”- this time at the RHS “Gardener’s World Live”. Cath’s Garden Plants are just up the road from us, at Sizergh, on the outskirts of Kendal. In the old days they were known as Heaves Nursery and were a specialist wholesale nursery. They supplied a good proportion of our perennials when we were first getting started 11 years ago. At that time their prices were so reasonable that we wondered how they could do it. I think its fair to say that if it hadn’t been for the good value they offered we wouldn’t have been able to afford to stock the garden. Quality will out- they now have a retail side and prices have caught up- but they are still bloody good value- and, as we now know, the best in the country to boot.
