Another top up of the autumn bulbs this week includes Snowdrops, English Bluebells, Anemones, Alliums. All good to plant now. Please bear in mind these sell through quite quickly so stock is changing daily.  We also have winter pansies, violas, heathers, cyclamen to brighten up your pots and beds for the autumn and winter.

We have now received the Winter Onion Sets & Shallots-Varieties and it’s time to get planting!

AUTUMN CHAMPION
SENSHYU YELLOW

IDEALLY, ONIONS AND SHALLOTS SHOULD BE PLANTED ON A NEW SITE EACH YEAR TO PREVENT DISEASES AND PESTS. FEEDING WITH A GENERAL FERTILIZER WILL IMPROVE YIELDS. AUTUMN PLANTING FOR EARLY HARVESTING. PLANT 12M / 5″ APART

GARLIC VARIETIES

EARLY PURPLE WHITE

Garlic requires free-draining, fertile soil in a sunny position. Adding a general fertilizer will improve yields. Break the bulb into cloves before planting. Plant the cloves 3cm deep and 10cm apart.

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.
