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

 

Bulbs are also a good thing to plant right now 

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.

 

 

 

TURF is perishable so please bear this in mind and reserve it in time. 

Once cut from its source it starts to deteriorate so the sooner it is put down the better.  We will only sell turf thast is in its best condition. 

It can be collected or delivered.  

 

 

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.

Silent Roar is a lion dung based product which is good deterrent for cats - on the premise of a bigger cat in the area! We have had lots of feedback on it being very effective and also working against foxes ......an animal that in this area seems to have problems with.

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.
