Do you want to recycle your cardboard boxes or bags?
We are always looking for BOXES - we collect & save them all year long but we still can't keep up with the demand for customers wishing to take their plants home in one !
If you have a box or a reusable bag please don't forget to bring it along and use it.
If you have any spare please remember us !
Bank holiday weekend and the sun is shining ! No one dare say it is too hot!
It is at that in between time in the Garden Centre - the sumnmer bedding , athough blooming in our own gardens, is no longer available from the growers so we are making do with what we can get and introdcing a splash of colour with late flowering perennials and then the jolly faces of the violas and pansies in the 6 pack bedding.
The Spring and early Summer bulbs ( next years!) are filtering through and look so wonderful in their packets. Plant from now on. Tulips, Daffodils, Alliums, Snowdrops, Bluebells - get them before they sell out ! A cheap and easy way to get the look of Spring in your garden.
We are busy stocking up on all sorts of beautiful plants for your delight!
If it's available we will have it !
If you see it , buy it as we often cant get in the same plant as the growers run out of their plants quickly at this time!
Chelsea Flower Show is on and lots of gardening programmes on TV encouraging people to smarten up their garden.
Vegetable seedlings are coming in each week. We order on a Monday morning and they all filter in towards the end of each week. Unfortnately we dont know what day or time they will arrive.
