Nicholsons Nurseries to hold trade open day

Nicholsons Nurseries are holding their first trade open day on Thursday 9 October.

The Oxfordshire company specialise in native trees and hedging but also supply shrubs and herbaceous perennials.

Nicholsons also offer forestry, hedging, fencing and landscaping services, from design and initial site preparation through to completion and aftercare.

Workshops and nursery tours will take place throughout the day including:

• Fruit and ornamental trees
A technical team from one of the UK’s leading fruit growers will discuss rootstock choice, successful pruning and what’s new. They will also look at an overview of the ornamental tree market and factors for the right choice of smaller garden trees.

• Hide the neighbour!
With clients’ increasing demands for privacy the speaker will present some hedge, screening and shrubbery options and touch on issues of aftercare.

• Multi-tasking Plants
An unusual look at the usual – exploring new ways of using plants and looking at labour saving plantings.

• Duty of care
An update from the nursery’s forestry experts on legislation, boundary hedges and Duty of Care.

To attend RSVP by 30th September. View www.nicholsons.gb.com, email cat@nicholsons.gb.com or telephone 01869 340342 Ex 221.
