Welcome to April, where so far we have been stuck in second gear as far as the weather is concerned. Hopefully with the clocks going forward and longer days approaching the sun will make a more definitive appearance. However, spring is definitely with us as many plants wake up from dormancy.

             Primroses, pansies and spring-flowering bulbs are all fully stocked at the garden centre, heralding the change in season with the addition of cheerful spring colours. Camellias and magnolias are also approaching their peak flowering and continue to give us a magnifient spring show.

            •We will start opening on Sundays from the 12th of April onwards. We are open on the Easter Bank Holidays from 11am and closed on Easter Sunday.

            •We continue to stock seeds from Thompson & Morgan and Franchi seeds with a wide range of choices  for this year

            •With a huge selection of shrubs, climbers and perennials in stock at the moment, this is a good moment to re-think or simply add to your garden

            • Our cards from the Natural History Museum's Archivist collection are both beautiful and inexpensive and we have added more variety to the range

            •Our range of tools from Spear & Jackson, the Kew Gardener collection, are the some of the best available and have proved to be a great success with our landscapers and customers

            •Garden maintenance and one-off garden visits can be arranged by our garden services department. Please speak to Patrick Green on 07813602409

              •Let us  hope for an improvement in the weather, so we can all be tempted to enjoy the outdoors!
