Magnolia-stellata

Spring 2019 has sprung

Spring has come early this year, with Magnolia and early Flowering Cherries in bloom all around Somerset.  The early February sunshine has brought lots of customers into the garden centre and our online hedging sales have been busy as well. The dry spell also meant we have had to turn our irrigation system on in January this year – the first time we’ve ever had to do that in the 20 years we have been here. Still, as Storm Freya batters us, we are now getting some welcome rain, if not so welcome wind.

New batches of herbaceous perennials (cottage-garden plants), shrubs and climbers are starting to fill the display tables in the garden centre and we have new varieties of summer-flowering bulbs ready to plant now.  As always, we are trying to find new, exciting and different plants for your gardens so we hope to see you again soon.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Clover Multipurpose Compost
Clover Multipurpose Compost

Clover Multipurpose Compost was tested for the first time by Which! Magazine and was voted Best Buy for seed sowing. Given a 5 out of 5 star rating, the magazine said “It couldn’t be faulted in the sowing seed tests, with very high germination rates and excellent growth for both the basil and the petunias. It was also good in the young plant tests”. We’ve always known it is an excellent compost and that is why we grow all our plants in Clover Compost.  Clover Multipurpose Compost 60 litre – 2 for £10 or 4 for £18 or £5.99 each.
