Our garden centre was opened in 1989 and was the realisation of a dream for our father Henry Shannon who had always wanted his own garden centre. It is now run by us, the next generation of the family, Bernard, Linda, Paul & Mary-Clare.  Sadly we lost our father Henry 'Bob' Shannon in July 2017  at the grand age of 86.  We still strive to maintain his high standards.

Our company has been pleasing customers for years. In fact in July 2019  our Garden Centre was 30 years old !

end of the day - Saturday 30th May 2020

Multi Purpose Compost has now sold out again  - we have none left until the next delivery into us which at the moment is on order but not booked in.

We will update when it arrives. 

No manure /soil conditioner/topsoil /coarse grit. 

Bedding plants are not available as growers runout as their stocks are not griwig fast enough ( we all know that problem !) This time period wil coincide with lockdown when the growers stopped growing as did not know what was goign to happen - add it to the sudden interest in gardening with the good weather and  now there is a shortage

We have a large anount of pot geraniums and pot osteospurnums at £3 each. 

 

We do have Strulch!

Very small amount of vegetable seeldings - but we do have a lot of vegetable seeds and it is not too late to start growing now - so maybe try it.  

 

 

We have had a busy first week with intermitent stock coming into us  - the growers are unable to keep up with the large amount of orders they are getting.   

On lockdown the growers understandably stopped growing bedding plants as  they did not know what was going to happen to their stock -  this period we are now in is the time that those plants would have been ready.  So the race is on to grow and every gardener knows this is a not something that can be speeded up!

 

We have sold out of compost but that is due in and shoul dbe here by Thursday.   Vegetable seedlings, bedding, perrenials and climbers and herbs are on all order.  BUt they are all on order and should filter through to us during this week - we have no idea when they will come - they just turn up!
