Dad forks the tree bins into our work area to be filled with soil.
Shortly after Toky-lui was taken into the house for a clean up and change of clothes. Spoilt thing!
Incredibly beautiful bare-root weeping mulberry trees are dug into the soil.
Rain, hail or shine we are always outside working in the nursery. Mum balances her Plants Plus umrella, clip board and a cuppa!
Every year is the same, every winter our bare-root trees arrive and we set out to display all of the new stock. We order our trees several months before from several suppliers and today they arrived. Murphy's law had it that it poured with rain while we unpacked the delivery trucks and set up our trees (infact it just rained all day today). Even our dog Toky-liu chipped in to help. It was otherwise a gloomy day in the garden centre, but it was great to see some folk out to pick up vegy and flower seedlings. It's a great time to plant while the ground is moist.
More trees and roses are arriving soon, so we will be back into it again.
Enjoy the rain. Krystal.
