We pride ourselves on being different. We invite you to come and discover the unusual, the rare, the beautiful and the quirky! Visit our traditional retail plant nursery, have a bite to eat in the Garden Cafe, explore our new Home & Lifestyle space, discover our new Food Hall (stocked with fresh local produce and artisanal goodies!) or unwind in our Tearoom with a freshly ground coffee.
Now's a great time to pick and plant fruit trees. We now have a huge selection of British grown fruit available.
Spring Flowering Bulbs Now Available!
It may seem early to think of spring but a good gardener thinks ahead. We now have a comprehensive selection of spring flowering bulbs in stock.
Now is a good time to cut back overhanging plants, as well as perennials which are past their best. You can also cut back herbs to encourage fresh, tasty leaves before winter arrives.
Late Summer Living
Enjoy the last of the summer sun with a little outdoor living. We have an extensive collection of outdoor furniture alongside revolutionary new bbqs developed with 3 Michelin Star celebrity chef, Heston Blumenthal.
Fruit & Veg
Keep picking salad leaf to stop it going to seed. Dig up onions and lay in an airy space to dry before putting in storage.
Now is a great time to give your lawn some much needed love to revitalise it and prepare it for winter. Keep on top of raking out moss, thatch and fallen leaves; regularly fork grass to aerate and improve drainage; and apply a good autumn fertiliser to encourage strong root development.
The Perfect Time To Plant
September is a good time to plant container grown shrubs, fruit bushes, trees, perennials and bulbs for next year. This month, sow: Japanese onions, spring cabbages, turnips, spinach, salad leaves & more. Later in September, plant daffodils, crocuses and hyacinths.
Look Out For Frost
September can sometimes bring a surprise frost, so keep an eye on the temperature. If frost threatens, move plants to warmer areas or add a good layer of mulch to protect their roots.
This month, prune Pyracantha (Firethorn), rambling roses, apple & pear trees you may have been training, and blackberry stems that have fruited.
Time To Take Cuttings
This month is a good time to take cuttings before colder weather arrives. Cuttings from lavender can be taken this month, as well as from non-hardy perennials - these can be over wintered in a frost free area. It's also time to take hardwood cuttings from fruit bushes.
Prepare The Greenhouse
Prepare your greenhouse for cooler weather by ensuring greenhouse heaters are working properly if you have them; and removing any shading you may have in place to maximise the amount of light.
