Good morning gardeners. Welcome to the last full week of the month. As many COVID restrictions lift this week, we would like to inform you that although the legal requirement for face masks in retail will soon be gone, we would like to ask our customers to continue to wear them especially when in close proximity to our staff.
Not much in the way of product news this morning. Nothing that you don’t already know anyway. Summer bulbs & seed potato stocks are still excellent. However, over the coming weeks, you will also witness a gradual build up of general stock levels (weather permitted). It is worth noting that any freshly planted plants, at this time of year, may need extra protection from frost as they do not have the benefit of an established root system. Horticultural fleece is a handy thing to have in your gardening tool kit.
In the background, on the growing side of the nursery, the ‘build up’ of work load, is about to leap forwards. February is the month when a lot of new plants arrive. We have young perennials, shrubs from Italy & Holland, all scheduled for delivery. Most of the young plants will be for growing on, so there will be a frenzy of potting & greenhouse preparation commencing imminently. We have a trade show to visit this week also. Our aim is to be at peak readiness for the Spring season.
There is a lot of ‘chatter’ online about prices within our trade increasing this year. There is no smoke without fire. There will be some price increases from ALL #garden retailers during 2020. Please rest assured that we will stick to our mission statement of “Quality at reasonable prices”. We will try our level best to avoid large price rises but you should be prepared for the odd increase, & that such increases will NOT be exclusive to us.
That is all for today. We hope that you have a lovely week & Happy gardening everyone.

Not many Garden Centres can boast over ninety years of history, and yes, we have seen many changes over that period. Indeed change will continue as we strive always to supply the best in plants and facilities. One thing, however, will never change:
The core philosophy first introduced by Archibald John Mills way back in 1928 remains - the philosophy that built the company’s reputation, sustains it now, and will guide it in the future:
The best way to keep gardeners happy is to offer them plants of the highest quality, sold at reasonable prices.Read more
