Latest news, planting ideas & offers

First, our congratulations go to Mr Musk, the winner of the raffle held on 29th July at our Scents of Summer open evening.  Mr Musk wins £100 of RHS vouchers and we hope very much he will enjoy spending them with us! 

And now - the autumn bulb planting season is upon us. 

Don’t get confused by one particular autumn bulb.  Colchicums are surprising and very clever.  They come up already in flower, before the leaf shows, looking fantastic as they emerge from the ground.  They’re excellent for naturalising in grass.  Plant the bulbs
now and they’ll flower this autumn. 

The more conventional autumn planting bulbs that give a delightful spring show are with us in colossal variety.  To get you started how about our Select Collection offer on a range of Crocus and Narcissi, any 4 packs for £10.00. 

And, dare I say it, have you thought about pot planting Prepared Hyacinths for a fantastic table display at Christmas?  We have them in blue, white or pink at 65p each or 5 for £2.50 and they need to be potted and in the dark in September.  Please ask for one of our cultivation leaflets to ensure your chosen variety is flowering on the day!
