Monday to Saturday 9am – 4pm and Sunday 10am – 4pm
THE GARDENING SEASON IS NOW WELL UNDERWAY- WE STILL HAVE STOCK COMING IN BUT THERE IS NOT AS MUCH AVAILABILITY AS EARLIER IN THE YEAR. WE UPDATE OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES- FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM ON A REGULAR BASIS.
Remember to keep up the watering and feeding all your plants in pots and in the ground. It is very important at this time of year to keep your plants healthy and get the best out of them.
With the very hot weather we are quieter and therefore we are not getting as many deliveries as usual but we will get weekly top ups.
We still have herbaceous to fill in your gaps and also some bedding. Please note stock changes daily at this time of year and something you see on our website or social media may sell out quickly and not be in stock when you visit. We order at the beginning of every week and the stock should be in by the following weekend.
We always try to have a good selection of composts including Melcourt and Sylvagrow peat-free and peat-free organic along with a selection of manure, bark etc. We are expecting a delivery of this compost again in the next few days.
We have herbs delivery arriving this week with the usual favourites 9cm and 1-litre pots. Some veg is still coming in but there will be less variety as the season progresses as there will not be enough time for the crops to fully harvest.
We accept National Garden gift paper vouchers but we do not accept the new E-vouchers. We still accept the old gift cards starting ‘1000’ but not the new gift cards starting ‘6085’.
We will post on here and our social media as stock comes in.
Just a reminder… OUR ENTRANCE IS VIA MALHAM ROAD SE23 1AH.
We have beautiful David Austin roses – to plant now,
The veg season has almost come to an end – we have some carrots, cabbage and a few tomatoes left.
Our garden centre has an extensive selection of goods in stock through our long-standing relationships with our able suppliers. Here is a selection and you can view all our range via the link below.
