We have had our delivery of seed potatoes, onions, shallots and garlic.

Potatoes are available in 2kg Carri packs and taster packs with around 10 seed potatoes in a pack.

Onions and shallots are in pre-packs, Garlic is in a pack of 1 or 2 bulbs per pack.

This year our garlic, shallots, onions and potatoes have come from Taylors Bulbs again. The potatoes are available in a 2kg carry home pack and taster packs of 10 seed potatoes for spring planting.

Our range contains First and Second Early, Main Crop and Sapro Mira the Super Blight resistant seed potatoes. The Seed Potato Taster Pack is ideal for the gardener requiring smaller quantities and a range of varieties.

With a large selection of potato varieties in our range, choosing which Seed Potatoes to plant can be a bit daunting! So here is a short guide to help choose which varieties to grow:

The seed potato packs are colour coded; blue for “First Earlies”, orange for “Second Earlies” and green for “Maincrop”.

First and Second Earlies will give you “new potatoes” in the summer, Maincrops will give you tubers for eating in the autumn and enough to store over winter for later use.

First Earlies will typically be ready for harvesting in June/July, Second Earlies in July/August and Main Crops from August onward but if storing then can be harvested in September or October.

(this list may be subject to change without notice due to crop failure etc).

 

Did you forget to plant your bulbs in the Autumn for your Spring colour – don’t worry we have a selection of Spring bulbs ready for planting straight out.  Daffodils, hyacinths, snowdrops and more are ready to go – plant in pots and baskets or straight in the garden.  Fully hardy.

We have had our first delivery of houseplants in.  It’s lovely to see the shop looking so lush again.

Have you a big gap now the Christmas decorations have gone and need to fill that gap? We have a plant for you including – Spatiphyllum (peace lily), schlumbergera, calathea (marantha), chlorophytum (spider plant), crassula, ficus, fittonia, hypostes, monstera and many more.

The houseplants sell through quite quickly so stock is ever-changing but we do get top-ups weekly.

Happy New Year to all our customers!  We have been closed for a short break but have been busy ordering and taking in stock for the new gardening year whilst our doors have been closed. We will be reopened fully from Monday 10th January: Monday- Saturday 9-5pm Sunday 10-4pm

The first of our deliveries have started to arrive including a lovely selection of houseplants.  Please see our social media pages for pictures – Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Over the coming weeks we are expecting stock including seed potatoes, potted bulbs – so if you forgot to plant your autumn bulbs there is still time to have spring colour. We have already had a delivery of Sylvgrow/Melcourt organic and peat-free compost.

We would recommend protecting against slugs when you plant in the form of barriers or pellets.

Bloomin Amazing is a no-dig #peatfree mulch, easy feed and soil conditioner all in one. Produced in the West Country, it has an effective carbon footprint and is a by-product of renewable energy.

It is lightweight, clean and almost odourless – it has so many of the properties of real manure – so it’s ideal for the garden.

It’s entirely pet and family-friendly, and very high in organic matter making it a perfect soil enricher and very effective weed suppressant.

With only green material in its makeup, it is entirely organic and vegan friendly.

Now in 50-litre bags to make handling easier.

New delivery of pots this week 20th May 2021 – we do not have as many pots as we normally stock – this is due to our supplier not having them.

We will continue to try to get stock regularly and we update our social media pages – Instagram, Facebook and Twitter often.

Below are pictures of the pots we now have. We have a small range of regular terracotta flowers pots.  We will continue to stock up on pots as often as we can.

As we go into the season pots will go in and out of stock and we will continue to reorder but we may not have all the pots in the pictures as time moves on.

 

We have now received our new decorative stone order from Deco Pak.

We have had to change to a new supplier this year due to our previous supplier having a problem getting stock to us during the Covid crisis.
