Hi Finuala

I have made arrangements today for our first nursery visiting trip – and I am EXCITED!!!

The main purpose of the trip is to visit Paul Whittaker plants: http://www.hardybamboo.com/

 This is one of the nurseries I had hoped to visit at the end of last year. I have spoken to Paul today and he came across as really helpful and knowledgeable. He has asked me to email him a plan with dimensions, aspects etc. and some photos of the area I am wanting to plant so that he can offer me appropriate advice and suggestions when we visit.

He runs the nursery with his wife, and they are both doggie people so hopefully we will be on the same wavelength!!!

 Keep watching this space!!

 Best wishes
