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 available in store £7.99 70 Litres (collection deal 2 for £15.00).

It’s great to be open again and we have been busy stocking up.

Our main delivery of outdoor pots have arrived- there are many shapes and sizes now in.

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 had a delivery of perennials plants including Acanthus, Amarine, Digitalis, Geum, Heucherella, Lupin and also a delivery of potted bulbs- which can be transplanted into your garden or pots etc.  – please click on the link below to view the lists.

Most soft fruits are very easy to grow in the UK with very few special requirements except for maybe blueberries which need acid soil and feed. Soft fruits are best planted in a sunny, sheltered site protected from cold, dry winds but nearly all types will do reasonably well in light shade as well. But remember more sun equals more fruit! Containerised grown canes can be planted at any time of the year providing the ground is not frozen or waterlogged.

Enrich the soil with manure or compost before planting and feed each year. Keep the plants well-watered and free from weeds.  Almost all types of fruits may need to be protected from preying birds when they are fruiting and depending on the fruit bush you choose will depend on when and if it needs pruning.

Our Fruit Trees are in pots and can be planted any time of the year as long as the ground is not frozen.

We love this time of year in the garden centre as it means the arrival of lots of seeds and bulbs to plant for the Spring.

We often get asked at this time of year, “What kind of bulbs can I plant in Spring?” Well, here’s a selection to get you started…

  • Daffodils.
  • Tulips.
  • Narcissus.
  • Alliums.
  • Hyacinths.

And you can find all of these here at Shannons. Once you’ve bought your bulbs, here are some tips as to when and how to plant them:

Begin planting your spring flowering bulbs, corms and tubers between October and December, before the coldest winter weather sets in. You can plant them in containers or straight into borders, but as a rule of thumb, most bulbs should be planted at 3 times their depth.

We’re always happy to give planting advice when asked and so, happy planting!

Whether it’s for indoor or outdoor plants, we have a wide selection of pots for your plants.

If you’re looking for a pot for your plant, whether it’s an outdoor variety or one that is kept indoors, here at Shannons we have a great selection of pots in stock throughout the year from a range of leading suppliers.

For indoor plants, there’s the Elho range which comes in both plastic and china

And for outdoor plants, we have the popular terracotta pots and we also stock the frost-proof Yorkshire pots
