May/June 2018

We are now well into the season with all seasonal plants, vegetable seedlings, shrubs, herbs and bedding coming into us on a weekly basis.   As well as composts, chemicals, sundries and houseplants.

 

 

We always order on a Monday after the weekend when we know what is needed - the growers send us lists and we pick what we need off them and hope that we will get in first and get what we have ordered!

 

The stock then feeds into us from our suppliers as the week goes by - they turn up on any days of thew week and at any time  - ensuring that by the weekend it is all here.

Slug pellets have been in big demand this year especially the ones approved for organic growing and should still be used now......little and often is the key.

Filming - November 2012

We were filmed by BBC1 for a programme about the weather and how it has affected business in 2012. Someone realised that garden centres would have been badly hit by first a drought (!) and then non stop rain for 3 months in Spring when it is traditionally the busiest time for us.
The good news is that 2 years are never the same so we have high expectations of a very nice Spring and Summer 2013.
It was shown on TV on Sunday 30th December 2012 at 5.30 pm on BBC1.
HERE IS A LINK TO THE PROGRAMME http://vimeo.com/56516656

TOTALLY LOCALLY - FOREST HILL
'Totally Locally' has been launched by Forest Hill's traders and aims to change people's shopping habits by getting them to commit to spending at least £5 per week in their local independents. There's no need to avoid the supermarket, but £5 spent in a local shop helps support local businesses, jobs and families. Find out more on their website totally-locally.co.uk/foresthill.
