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.
We see Poinsettias appear every year around Christmas time. The Supermarkets are full of them and we, of course, stock them at the Garden Centre. They are a great plant to have at Christmas, their red foliage being perfect for matching any Christmas colour scheme.
But how many of you throw them away after Christmas because they have appeared to have died? Most people think Poinsettias are just for the Christmas period.
So one of the most asked questions at the Garden Centre around Christmas time is “How do I look after my poinsettia?” Poinsettias can, with a little care, last for much longer than the couple of weeks at Christmas.
