Plant­ing ideas

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

YOUR ed­i­to­rial about the steady loss of plant nurs­eries rang a loud chord with me (March 29). As the wife of a nurs­ery­man, I was ap­palled to hear a well-known gar­den­ing pro­gramme last year tell view­ers that gar­den cen­tres would be shut on Easter Sun­day—of course, by no means all are!

Fol­low­ing this, three of us banded to­gether to cre­ate the In­de­pen­dent Plant Nurs­eries Guide (www. in­de­pen­dent­plant­nurs­eries­, pro­vid­ing on­line in­for­ma­tion on more than 300 nurs­eries through­out the Bri­tish Isles. It’s run by vol­un­teers, costs noth­ing to use and noth­ing to join. We hope your read­ers will find this new re­source use­ful. Sacha Hub­bard, Devon
