Local Grown Plants
I have been on my travels again visiting some of the best growers that we have in the area, and I have been really surprised, I have seen clematis in flower, large fuchsias in flower nearly 4 weeks sooner than normal. Sales are very good with the quality and price of everything being perfect.
The mild winter has also bought on the range of plants grown by one of my best growers Chris Peach. I was surprised when I walked through his glasshouses to see the Fuchsia Hanging baskets that we sell hundreds of already available and looking fantastic, 13cm Zonal Geraniums (and I truly believe that Chris is the best grower of these in the country) in flower and we are able to keep the same price as we have for the past 8 years!! £2.25 each or 5 for £10.00
So with the sun shinning and creating a real buzz in the shop I planted a range of terracotta planters with some geraniums and 13cm fuchsia these start at just £7.99!
Our range of 1.5 litre potted perennials has grown with the addition of hostas, lupins, delphiniums, astilbe, lavenders and really to many to list. These are fantastic value at £2.99 each of 2 for £5.00.
