We have now closed the doors to our shop due to government regulations.   This is the right thing to do as we were very busy and social distancing was becoming very difficult to adhere to.  see home page

However we have realised that we are allowed to deliver to customers houses so we asking that any requests are made to us by email to - we can then reply and give prices and stock availability.  Customers can then pay over the telephone and arrange contact whatsoever.

We have been inundated with emails and we are answering as we receive them. 

Unfortunately deliveries into us are understandably classed as non essential so orders we were expecting of compost and vegetable seedling have been cancelled or delayed but we are still hopeful that next week we will get some.

As we are all aware things change fast these days and we are mindful that we may have to stop these deliveries- that will depend on daily updates from the government


We will keep facebook and twitter accounts updated as to any changes.

We would like to send our wishes for you all to stay safe and be careful and look forward to serving you in the not too distant future.

OUTDOOR POTS  - the biggest selection ever of ceramic and terracotta pots have now arrived for 2020 season  - as well as recycled plastic pots.


ELHO ARE OUR MAIN STOCKISTS OF PLASTIC POTS - THIS IS THEIR MISSION STATEMENT  - we’re constantly looking for the most sustainable way of production. That’s why we currently use 70% of recycled plastic. However, ease of use and design are just as important to us, which means that we sometimes have to work with new materials. Even then, we always look at the most sustainable way of doing this. We’re very proud to already use 70% of recycled materials – that’s 6,000,000 kilos per year – but of course, we want to reach higher. Day in, day out, we’re looking for new, even more sustainable solutions to create products that make your life a little greener.

WE STOCK A RANGE OF POPULAR GREEN HOUSEPLANTS - THESE ARE CHOSEN FOR THEIR EASE OF CARE! As we know how busy it can get and we often forget about our houseplants. Under or over watering is the common problem and so need to ensure your plants are in a pot with drainage holes so any excess water can run out. Then this plastic pot will sit into another pot with no holes - a POT COVER or onto a saucer to collect the excess water. Do not leave excess water sitting in this outer pot or saucer for longer than 2 hours.
