May

                  We will re-open for business from Monday the 18th of May, our opening times will be 10.30 am to 4.30 pm every day apart from Fridays when we will be closed. Last entry is at 4.15 pm every day.

              Until then we are doing deliveries as well as click and collect.  Please send your plant requests to rassellsofkensington@gmail.com, enclosing your details: address and phone number, and we will contact you as soon as we are able to. This is a delivery service only, for any garden service enquiries please contact Patrick Green at rassells@btinternet.com.

                We have a minimum order of £25 for deliveries and a £7.50 delivery charge for all deliveries.

                  •Spring bedding plants are now available, including many types of spring bulbs, primroses, pansies etc

              •Gardens are already emerging from dormancy but it is still no too late to cut back any old growth on perennials, as well as remove leaves from borders and plant a selection of spring-flowering bulbs

              •Various shrubs are showing their winter and early spring colours or flowers - red-barked dogwoods, berried ilex and winter jasmines are just a few. Other plants have a strong and sweet perfume at this time - winter box (sarcococca), winter honeysuckle and of course the lovely Chinese witch hazels and winter viburnums.

                 •From January we have decided to charge for our much-admired plastic bags, in an effort to get our gardening public to bring them back and re-use them. It is time to get real about plastics on every level! 

              •Our selection of tools from Spear & Jackson, the Kew Gardener collection, is one of the best available and has proved to be a great success with our landscapers and customers. It may be worth checking and oiling the tools you have and possibly consider replacements if needed    

              •Our cards from the Natural History Museum's Archivist collection are both beautiful and inexpensive and provide a lovely way to send a message with a floral gift. We have added ten new designs from Blume editions to add choices to our range which are equally as charming

              •We stock all the necessary components for irrigation systems from both Hozelock and Gardena. Your systems should be turned off or drained down for at least a few more weeks, and certainly not used until the chance of frost is diminished. We can supply any spare parts that are required.

                 We hope that you all stay safe and well, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
