July

            Welcome to July where we are truly experiencing a summer heat-wave. Keep an eye on all your pots and be prepared to water on a daily basis. Dead-heading of summer bedding combined with regular liquid feeding such as tomato food will prolong the flowering period of these plants.

               Geraniums , trailing petunias, diascias and cosmos daisies continue to be available with considerable variety of colour. Bring the summer garden alive so the evenings spent outside will be rewarded with the pleasure of planting.

             •We are now closed on Sundays for the summer and will start Sundays again on the 4th of October.

             •Summer bedding plants are still available - now is the time to think about window boxes and containers.

             •We are also carrying a large selection of shrubs, climbers and perennials - a good moment to re-think your borders and give a different look to the garden. 

             •It is a lovely time of year for seasonal cut flowers - paeonias, sweet peas, larkspur and scabious are becoming available over the next few weeks.

             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

              •We stock all the necessary components for irrigation systems from both Hozelock and Gardena 

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

              •Fingers crossed for a few weeks of glorious weather when we can sit outside and really enjoy our gardens!
