We try to listen to what our customers want and every time they ask for a product we do our best to stock it for them. Over the years we have built up a store of goods that people find useful.
Due to our one way system please look at the compost that you would like and then ask for it when you reach the till. Once you have paid you return to the entrance gate where you can show your receipt, be given a wheelbarrow and load your compost. This saves you pushing the compost all the way around the nursery and also preserves the life of our trollies! We are sorry but in this current climate we do not offer to load your compost. If you have difficulty lifting please ask the person on the gate then sit in the front of the vehicle so that he can load while keeping a safe distance. Thank you.
We are pleased to stock many varieties of compost and particularly Peat Free and Peat Reduced compost. This is kinder to the environment as taking peat impacts on the ozone layer as it is a carbon store. It is also affecting birds and wildlife that would have flourished in the area. Please feel free to ask us for advice on what is best for your needs. For example some people are looking for compost to put in their pots while others need something to enrich their garden. We are pleased to say that Paul has managed to keep a stock of compost at all times throughout the crisis.
We sell turf. Please come in to order or ring to check that we have turf available. We stock Regal turf which is a high quality, hard wearing turf that is suitable for all lawns. Each turf is 1 metre square and measures 61cm by 164cm. Usually orders are taken and turf is delivered, freshly harvested for the end of the week. We ask for a minimum order of 10 rolls for orders but when we place an order we add a few extra for if people need the odd roll to repair a patch in the garden.
Pots, hanging baskets and tools
Ruth loves choosing the glazed and terracotta pots, hanging baskets and has developed a surprising love of ceramic animal ornaments for the garden!
We hold many lines that are useful for when you are in the garden such as gloves, secateurs, trowels, labels, string, netting. We stock Kew Collection garden tools, Darlac pruning products, and much more! Always ask if you can't find what you are looking for - we may have it hidden away somewhere!
Chemicals and fertilisers
We have a shed beside the potting shed with a full selection of fertilisers and chemicals, some of which are organic. Customers often come to us for advice on what is happening in their gardens and we do our best, from a safe distance, to help you.
