Welcome to December. As the weather becomes increasingly cold, our thoughts turn to the festive season of Christmas.
The garden centre still has lots of interesting evergreen shrubs and bulbs that brighten the winter garden, as well as stem colours and berries that other plants contribute to the overall winter picture. Inside the shop this month we will have a selection of festive colour - ranging from various coloured poinsettias to amaryllis, Christmas cacti and the sweetly scented indoor jasmines.
We have a wide selection of Fair Trade papier mache and traditional glass Christmas baubles as well as a variety of natural fruit decorations and are now taking orders for hand-made advent rings, Christmas wreaths, mantle arrangements, garlands and door knockers - come and choose your favorite decorations and we will make them to order. Branches of blue pine, pine cones, twisted willow stems, moss and lichens will also be available to buy.
Our Christmas trees will arrive at the end of November ranging in size from 4ft to 15ft. Nordmann Fir, a long-lasting glossy needled premium quality tree will bed available from the 1st of December. Local delivery can be arranged and phone orders can be taken (02079370481).
Rassell's looks forward to a busy and industrious Christmas and we would like to send out all our best wishes for a peaceful time to all our customers.
