All Fools' Day01.04.2019
You wouldn't believe the joke we received today. We got an e-mail from Google Inc. saying that they stopped our ads. Reason followed a few lines below - Magnolias are listed as other weapons and Google Inc. does not "allow the promotion of some products or services that cause damage, harm, or injury". I swear that this is NOT an April 1 joke, this really happened.

Unfortunately it is nothing but evidence of the level of mistakes every exaggerated effort to protect something can and does go wrong in the end, and the creators have no clue that such stupidity is possible. I think that it all started when a woman in the US decided to dry her wet cat in the microwave where, surprisingly, the animal got such injuries that it dies several minutes after. And you know what? She sued the microwave producer that it was nowhere made clear that she could not do so and she WON!!

The so-called Health & Safety Regulations hit the UK some 15 or more years ago, telling companies for instance to paint the first and the last step of a stairway with a singal colour. Possibly in order to navigate the drunk employees after a long weekend ... And GDPR last year? I think I should keep my mouth shut to remain polite. It appears as a bulletproof security for all people, something to keep their personal data safe, while in practice it just gave rise to numerous new companies offering GDPR analysis and projects to "help" your company do the necessary. And along with that help your company off a large sum.

In other words you are constantly massaged with assurances how safe you are because all the others were made to make steps for your protection. And then you go and download an app you think might be good for you. E.g. an ap for recognizing plants. And in order to use it you HAVE TO allow access to your: phone book, address book, texts, camera, gallery, skype history, or maybe even your shoe size. How come no one bothers to protect that, telling you how wrong it is to steel such sensitive personal data? I was amazed to learn there is a new and obviously FREE app to correct your spelling. How come an app of such quality can be free? Because you allow them to know EVERYTHING what you are writing, making you believe that they are doing you good by correcting your spelling or vocabulary choice. Because from now on you MUST write everything on-line. I was even more shocked by the extra suggestive add for a brand new service that tells you a lot about your origin through a simple DNA test. No worries - they don't want a lot of money (59 bucks is not that bad, is it?), all they want is just a tiny DNA sample. How easy and innocent, uuh? Because I am sure that you never slept so well until you learnt that you are an Eskimo from 7% and that your DNA is now in safe hands ...

Well, let's not waste time on things that go drastically wrong nowadays, and enjoy some "weapons" like this VULCAN magnolia. Beware - it's fully loaded!

It's the first day of March and we are here, as usual, ready to open our gates with the new growing and selling season. All winter long we were working hard putting together an exclusive range of plants, wider than last year, and obviously in uncompromising quality.

The goods will be delivered to our garden centres during the whole spring, and if you have an order placed please wait until we notify you that it's been completed. It may take a while if your order needs plants from several growers.

And while waiting take a look at what's blooming and beautiful right now. Or if you have a picture of something dashing from your garden send it over if you like to share your joy, we will gladly show it to others :-) We wish you a fantastic spring!

Typical plants for late winter are fragrant witch hazels. We get some more every year, mostly thanks to Mr.Hachmann from Germany, who apart from breeding rhododendrons has possibly the largest collection of witch hazels in Europe.

This spring we will have three new varieties, this is the first one called Robert. It boasts rich golden orange flowers and slower, compact growth.

In the previous picture was a classic one - Jelena. Both the varieties have a strong, sweet and spicy scent.

On the contrary Pallida has only sweet fragrance without any spiciness.

What we said about witch hazels holds good for Lenten roses as well. Also here we search for new varieties every year and are happy to have so many novelties this spring. And get ready - there'll be a few more :-)

This one is called Elly. It had its first flowers in December, they lost colour by now but not firmness, and start to make plenty of new buds and flowers to show off until May.

This beauty is my favourite - Sophie. It has freckled cheeks on yellow background.

This steel blue beauty is a dwarf among cedars. Its name is Feelin' Blue and the plant in the picture is almost totally left to its own devices - no staking or shaping. We just cut off a couple of branches that were lying on the ground.

Of course I will tell you what's behind the cedar - the emerald green cushion. It is possibly our oldest hebe called New Zealand. We never touched it with scissors, it is flawless without any help, and irrespective of frost, such fresh green all winter long, and very hardy.

If you are looking for a glowing torch to shine through your garden in winter get one of these winter colouring pines.

This one is called Golden Glow.

This tempting colour combination is my neighbour's hedge. Vivid red stems of Tatarian dogwood and green-leaved species of evergreen silverthorn.
