Our grateful thanks to all who host our trials, and

work very hard to make a successfull go of

them on the day!


Last of the 23/24 Nursery trials, after a rather damp season of 11 trials, due to this very wet autumn, winter and spring.

Happy Easter!

Have a good lambing everyone, and hopefully, a sunny open season in due course.
