SNOW (December 14, 2010)
December came and the heavens opened !!! No one could have predicted the extreme weather that we experienced, and unfortunately the devastation that it would cause around the U.K .
The nursery got quite badly damaged and we lost a considerable amount of stock. To add to our troubles one of our twin span polly tunnels collapsed under the weight of the snow. Plants that I planted as a child which have stood up to snow, ice, frost and wind over the past 20 years also unfortunately died.
Below are some pictures that we took just to show how bad the snow was.

This is a shot looking down the B road that the nursery is situated on only passable for a few daring four wheel drives
