We are a family run garden centre that is well known nationally as a specialist for bare rooted hedging plants and young trees. The Garden Centre always has a good selection of shrubs and plants which are not commonly found elsewhere, together with a wide range of the more commonly sought after plants. Established for over 50 years, the Garden Centre has recently been redeveloped to a high standard. Our shop contains the largest selection of seeds and bulbs for miles around, together with garden chemicals, tools, garden furniture and many other goods. Outside we stock peat-based and peat-free composts, paving, fencing, timber decking, garden buildings and greenhouses, and a large range of pots, statues and garden ornaments. Our aquatics centre has a good reputation for their excellent quality tropical, marine and cold water fish. The Gardeners' Retreat, our coffee shop/restaurant, serves fresh home cooked food and is an excellent way to round off any visit to the Garden Centre.
Chickens lay varying numbers of eggs depending on breed and age. Rhode Island Red hybrid hens usually lay 300 + eggs in their first year of life. Other hybrid hens lay between 240 and 300 eggs in their first year. Hens will lay less in their second and third years as the first year is always the most productive, although the eggs will be larger than in the first year.
Pure breed hens will lay fewer eggs than hybrid hens that have been specifically bred for laying.
