Lots of new ideas to keep your garden looking fresh.

We are always stocking new items for the garden and it would be hard to list them all but we’d love to welcome you to wander around our nursery to see what we have. This year we have new suppliers of garden mirrors, obelisks and garden decorations.

Hanging Baskets

The most fun job at this time of year is planting up summer hanging baskets and containers. You might even like to try making a basket for strawberries or tumbling tomatoes. We sell a variety of baskets, round, cone shaped, wire, wicker and decorated. We also have planted some up for sale on the basket tree by our potting shed or in the polytunnel.

You can watch the video below for Ruth’s tips on how to create a beautiful hanging basket. If your basket is in the shade there is also a video for a summer shady basket. Just check out the gardening tips page here on our website.

Hanging Baskets for Care Homes

We love making baskets and this year has been so hard for everyone living and working in care homes so we are offering a free hanging basket planting service. If you are a care home please bring up to two baskets along with a letter from the home and we will refill them for you.
